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.”
As per a report, victims involved in the mass killing were “hacked to death, burned alive, or shot simply based on their ethnic or religious identity”.
The superstar performed a number of hit songs at the Xmas party, including ‘It’s like that’ and her new single ‘The Art of Letting Go’. She also honored civil rights leader, Nelson Mandela with her song ‘Hero’.
