Nicki Minaj Targeted by Human Rights Activists for Angola Performance

The Human Rights Foundation asks the rapper to cancel her scheduled appearance in the country ruled by Jose Eduardo dos Santos. A human-rights activist famous for dropping copies of The Interview all over North Korea is picking a fight with Nicki Minaj. Minaj is set to headline Show Unitel Boas Festas, a Christmas festival scheduled for Saturday in Luanda, the capital of Angola, according to a post on her official Facebook page.

 

The country has been ruled for decades by President Jose Eduardo dos Santos. The African nation is often accused of violating the basic rights of journalists, activists and others who speak out against government oppression and intimidation, which sometimes is implemented through police who use excessive force to make arbitrary arrests. In a letter mailed to Minaj via Brian Sher of Category 5 Entertainment, Thor Halvorssen, head of Human Rights Foundation, asks the rapper to cancel her scheduled appearance. Halvorssen also plans to publish the letter at his organization's website.
