Nicki Minaj will NOT be performing in Saudi Arabia as planned
Nicki Minaj was supposed to be headlining a highly anticipated music festival in Jeddah called the Jeddah World Fest, however she pulled out just 10 days before the gig, much to the dismay of her Saudi fans.
Nicki’s name was removed from the line up on the official Jeddah World Fest website, along with an official statement on the event's social media pages. “Unfortunately Nicki Minaj has cancelled her live performance at Jeddah World Fest on July 18th due to personal reasons. Ticket refunds will be offered if desired. Please note the second wave of performers will be announced this week” the posts said.
Still on the lineup are Liam Payne, DJs Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, R3hab, Afrojack and KPOP bands KRY and D&E.
