Mariah Carey has being doing a lot of big gigs in Africa of late, after the media took her on for her performance at Acess Bank’s private end of year party in Nigeria, Mariah is under fire–again–for performing for a country’s leader who is known to anger human rights groups and is often called a dictator.
A few days ago, Mariah headed to Africa to do performances in Nigeria and Angola. But it was her performance for the Angolan President Josè Eduardo Dos Santos last Sunday that has pissed off several human rights groups.
The Human Rights Foundation claims Dos Santos has murdered many and exploited the country’s resources to his own gain. And he reportedly used country resources to pay Mariah $1 million to perform a two-hour concert at an event for the Angolan Red Cross.
Mariah was pictured smiling it up with the President and his family in pics posted by a publication’s Facebook page.
After MiMi performed for Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi five years ago, she caught hell then as well and later apologized saying she was embarrassed to be “caught up in that mess”.
Maybe her heart was in the right place, but human rights groups aren’t feeling any part of this “heart” or all that cash. Especially since she has yet to comment.
