Whoever wrote the article below regarding Mariah Carey and her performance in Nigeria must be a racist. The writer is without knowledge of what is going on in his/her country as compare to what is happening in Nigeria.  America as they claim is not God’s own nation because of the level of crimes and atrocities going daily in this country especially among the youth. A country that anyone can wake up in a day and takes the live of the innocent ones or school children and left untouched. A country where guns and ammunition are encouraged and embraced.

Why will a man in his/her right sense be criticizing an entertainer that is well accepted all over the world for performing in a country that appreciates her talent and songs? Should Mariah Carey be discriminating about which country she can and cannot perform for? How many American artistes have performed alive in Nigeria without any problem? Why this negative comments about Nigeria and not America? Which country is without blemish, crime, corruption, terrorism, scammers or bad leadership?

USA was recently caught tapping phone calls of several Head of State of different countries but nothing happens about it. Is this a display of good leadership by the so called leaders in United States?
Who invented terrorism with the invention of gun and other weapons of war? You invented terrorism with the advent of guns and other weapon of mass destruction and you now turn to Africa as been involved in terrorism.

Who used Africans to get to where you are today? The sweat of our great ancestors built your nations to the standards they are presently. Without their enslavement you will still be developing. I think is high time you pay for this instead of sitting down at the corner of your room  writing the unimaginable.
You started slavery (the human trafficking market) and you are now pointing to Nigeria as the hub of human. Those slaves you trafficked with chains and hand-cuffs all over them was that migration or human trafficking?
You introduced money as means of exchange and disregard trade by barter that existed in Nigeria so as to amass her natural resources and thereby introduced the element (money) that led to the beginning of corruption in Nigeria.

Where are the money stolen from Nigeria stocked? The money that you know were gotten through ill-means and corruption are accepted overseas in Swiss Bank, Barclay Banks, America Banks and other banks. Yet you continuously sing the song of not being corrupt.
Please return all the ill-gotten money saved in your banks to Africa and discourages them from stacking their nations’ wealth in your bank by following due diligence instead of egocentrism.

Who is then the bigger thief? Who is then more corrupt? Who is then logically enslaving other countries because they have natural resources such as oil and gas?
What is united in United States or United Nations?

Radar staff should find better means of educating the world rather pointing figures of negative things and events in a country that is not theirs.

Radar article:
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.

“Systemic corruption in the Nigeria Police Force” is the problem, a HRW spokesperson told CNN.

Carey isn’t the first performer who has taken a paycheck for appearing in countries known for terror, death and fraud.

In 2011, BeyoncĂ© sang for Moammar Gadhafi’s sons and Jennifer Lopez performed in Turkmenistan. (Who criticize them?)
