Am disappointed that a reputable gossip website like Radar Online will write such crap on their website, a baseless argument ... whats the relationship with showbiz and a country's crime rate .. US gossip site Radar Online yesterday scolded Mariah Carey in an article posted on their site, saying she shouldn't have accepted to do a gig in a country known for 'terror, death and fraud'. What nonsense, they can talk when the US is the number one crime capital of the world. Read the Radar Online article below...
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.
Besides Carey isn’t the first performer who has taken a paycheck for appearing in countries known for terror, death and fraud. Speaking of crime rates, Please is it that Radar Online is not aware of the increase in child rape in their country and the fact that the gun policy in the US is a major cause of all the random shootings in neighborhoods and schools .. such a baseless point . I guess the editor must have been on crack before thinking that up or allowing such post. Big shame .. Meanwhile Nigerians had a great time and +Mariah Carey put up an amazing performance
