Kanye West reportedly performed a special concert in Kazakhstan over the weekend. It was no ordinary gig — it was a wedding for the grandson of the country’s president.
According to TMZ, Kanye was paid around three million bucks to perform at the Hotel Royal Tulip in the city of Almaty. Video of Kanye’s appearance has been posted by a guest on Instagram.
Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev has been accused of human rights violations during his time as leader of the country. Two years ago, Sting pulled out of what was described as a lucrative performance in Kazakhstan due to an alleged crackdown on striking oil workers there.
