(AllHipHop News) Nicki Minaj is heading to the ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where she is expected to hit the stage later this month.
Nicki is hitting the stage in the city of Jeddah, for the Jeddah World Fest on July 18, alongside British musician Liam Payne and American DJ Steve Aoki.
Some fans are worried about Nicki's promiscuous lyrics and her raunchy image in a country where women have a strict dress code and are segregated from men in public places.
Just last year, a controversy broke out in the kingdom and the country's head of Arts and Entertainment was fired because some women wore skin-tight leotards during a circus.
Others questioned Nicki's support of a country where women do not have basic human rights and being gay is a crime punishable by death.
Nicki's performance is slated to be aired on MTV and the organizers of the festival do not seem to be concerned about any possible backlash.
"She is going to be actively on her social media, she'll be posting right from the stage in Jeddah and at her hotel in Jeddah," an organizer named Robert Quirke to the Arab News.
