Rapper Nicki Minaj  is all set to head to Saudi Arabia to perform at the Jeddah World Festival later this month. According to reports, the 36-year-old rap star will be joining Liam Payne and DJ Steve Aoki as the headliners for the event, which will take place at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium. The concert's website mentioned that the stars will perform on July 18 for the festival. The news of Nick Minaj performing in the highly conservative country left netizens confused.

From wearing over the top outfits to raunchy lyrics, looks like the ultra conservative kingdom is trying to shed decades of restrictions on entertainment. According to a report in Al Jazeera, the announcements for Payne and Aoki posted on the Jeddah Season Twitter account featured photos of the artists. Whereas Minaj's announcement ran with only an animated image of her name.

Nicki Minaj's style in no way complies with the Saudi kingdom. Even more because the kingdom's rule for women are regressive and strict. 

Scores of netizens questioned Minaj's decisions to perform in the country. A tweet read, "Nicki Minaj is going to Saudi…what is going on…" Whereas another Twitter user wrote, "No one in Saudi Arabia googled Nicki Minaj did they? Rapper Nicki Minaj to headline mega music festival in Saudi Arabia."
