"Nigeria Is A Country Known For ‘Terror, Death And Fraud" - US Blasts Mariah Carey For Performing In Nigeria

Seems the US media are not comfortable with Mariah Carey performing at a country they described as the “center of the world’s email financial crimes”.

A popular news site, Radar Online, had this to say on the performance;

    Mariah Carey proudly posted a pic of herself in a slinky yellow dress and wrote, “Backstage in Nigeria” on Saturday.

    But maybe the songbird should have done some homework before agreeing to the gig?

    Her show was at Access Bank’s Christmas Party which was also a farewell bash for the bank’s managing director.

    And while Access Bank is a reputable financial institution, should Carey have known a few basics about the African nation before taking the paycheck?

    Ironically — given that she was performing for bankers — it seems Carey wasn’t aware Nigeria is well-known as the center of the world’s email financial crimes! Nigeria is even part of the name — as in “Nigerian 411 Scams.”

    Nigeria is also, according to the United Nations, the hub of human trafficking as “a source, destination and transit country.

    AND, just for good measure, there are mass killings going on in two Nigerian states right now, and according to Human Rights Watch, the violence is being ignored by federal authorities.

 “Systemic corruption in the Nigeria Police Force” is the problem, a HRW spokesperson told CNN.

Carey isn’t the first performer who has taken a paycheck for appearing in countries known for terror, death and fraud''. 

*When will these people learn to stop bringing in foreign singers and paying them monies meant to save a nation? I dont believe Mariah was paid peanuts to travel into Nigeria with all the security risks issued out to them before they set foot in Nigeria!

Embarrassing that a Bank is involved in this.

Anyway they should issue a press release so that we will know what we need to know!

Is she planning to return the money they paid her? Mariah if you are planning to return the money tell me so that I can send you my bank details. Roll Eyes

Americans always act as if their country is paradise. Well its not. There are people shooting school kids in your country. There are people committing all sorts of crime in your country. So focus on your own crimes and leave other countries alone. And leave Mariah alone. Singing is her job.

None of this would have happened if Access Bank had given half of the chunk of cash they paid Mariah to Tiwa or Omawumi. Ndi oka mma na iro. Cool
