 America's rapper artist Nikki Minaj has canceled a live performance in Saudi Arabia.  They have taken this decision for the rights of women and lesbians of Saudi Arabia.  Minaj was going to be a part of Jeddah's cultural festival next week.  Due to conservative views of women in Saudi Arabia, Nikki Minaj was being criticized on social media.

 On Friday, the New York-based Human Rights Foundation wrote Minaj an open letter and appealed to him to boycott the festival and demand his release from jail in Saudi Arabia's women activists for his global influence.

 Following such reactions to the show, Nikki Minaj released a statement.  He said, "I wanted to give a fine performance to my fans in Saudi Arabia, but after making myself educated on many issues, I decided that I should not be a part of Jeddah Festival, I think it is necessary that I  Support women and LGBTQ community and support the Freedom of Expression. "

 Although Nicky Minaj has been in a lot of dilemma with his decision.  He tweeted, "Many of my fans are writing me in the inbox that they will be sued if I do not come to Jeddah Festival. But you should understand that if any fan of mine is threatened or killed due to my identity  I will feel very bad, God is love, I am not distinguishing the Saudi Arabia government. "
 In fact, Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia is riding on the wave of liberalism and focus on infrastructure related to cinema, concerts and sports.  The country is also focusing heavily on the entertainment and tourism sector.  While Saudi Arabia has not yet provided Tourist Visas, Fast Track Electronic Permits have been arranged for international tourists so that these tourists can enjoy these festivals and can benefit from the economy of the country.  Although many people consider these social changes as a way to get attention from unemployment and falling economies.
