Welcome to Angola, Nicki Minaj

OPINIONBy Rafael Marques De Morais

Dear Nicki,

I welcome you to Angola. I am a journalist and human rights defender who has been at the forefront of exposing the dictatorial ills of the regime, whose first daughter and princess of state-looting, Isabel dos Santos, is your host.

Moments ago I received a message on my cell phone, from an UNITEL operator offering me a ticket to your concert tomorrow with the purchase of a 900 kwanzas (US $4.50) phone credit. That is for your concert "for the people" in the Coqueiros Stadium, with a capacity of 20,000 people. UNITEL is the company jointly owned by Isabel dos Santos and the Angolan state, which is paying your fees.
