True entertaining performer, quick rhymed rapper, Nicki Minaj is coming to Saudi Arabia later this month. She will be performing with Liam Payne and DJ Steve Aoki at King Abdullah Sports Complex in Jeddah. The ultra-traditionalist Kingdom is looking to shed the restrictions on entertainment. Nicki Minaj’s Performance in Saudi Arabia has Triggered a Storm on Social Media ranging from joy to criticism and disappointment.
This music festival is part of the Jeddah Season of activities which falls under the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritages. The Director-General of Jeddah Season said the ‘Jeddah World Fest’ would be the biggest music event of its kind and would be covered by MTV.
Over the past several months, the kingdom has seen performances by singers including Mariah Carey, Enrique Iglesias, the Black Eyed Peas and Sean Paul, as well as DJs David Guetta and Tiesto.
Although, Kingdom rules for the women are quite regressive and conventional. But, Minaj is known for her outlandish performances and flamboyant, hyper-sexualized image. Her lyrics often contain obscene language and address sex.

The announcement triggered a storm on social media, ranging from joy to criticism and disappointment.
A Saudi Woman called out the hypocrisy of Government to invite the Minaj to Shake her Boo**. But, restricting the attendees to wear the full-length abaya.
“She’s going to go and shake her ass and all her songs are indecent and about sex and shaking ass and then you tell me to wear the abaya,” the Saudi woman said. “What the hell?”

Such Objections should be encouraged as the first part is more equivalent to “The End is Near”.
