Nicki Minaj took home a cool $2 million to perform in Angola, even though human rights activist vehemently opposed her concert.

Activists say that the southern African nation’s leader José Eduardo dos Santos is one of the most corrupt in the entire continent and while Angola is one of the poorest countries in the world there is still enough money to pay Minaj $2 million. According to New York Post, the event was hosted by Unitel, an Angolan telecommunications company owned by the country’s dictator Jose Eduardo Santos.

Nevertheless, the fans of the rapper seemed to enjoy the concert, which took place on December 19th.

Thor Halvorssen, president of the Human Rights Foundation, wrote Minaj stating, “The payment you are receiving from your Angolan sponsors is the result of government corruption and human-rights violations.” Santos has ruled Angola since 1979.

Minaj went on to say, “Angola has my heart” in a post on Instagram and posted several pictures of the performance.
