Seems the US media are not comfortable with Mariah Carey performing at a country they described as the “center of the world’s email financial crimes”.
A popular news site, Radar Online, had this to say on the performance;

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.

Do you think this assessment of Nigeria is right? Do you have any issues with the US star performing for Access Bank? …What do you make of’s tirade and shouldAccess Bank have spent the whooping amount of money they did to fly in the songstress to perform at their party with the many engaging Nigerian artistes available?
