LUANDA - US singer Mariah Carey has aroused the indignation of human rights activists after performing in front of Angola’s veteran President Jose Eduardo dos Santos for a reported $1 million.
The Human Rights Foundation accused the “All I want for Christmas is you” hit singer of having been “purchased” to entertain one of Africa’s wealthiest families in one of the world’s poorest nations.
“Mariah Carey can’t seem to get enough dictator cash, reportedly more than $1 million this time,” said the group’s Thor Halvorssen, citing an earlier show for one of former Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi’s sons.
