Nicki Minaj to perform debut gig in Dubai

e award-winning artist Nicki Minaj will be performing in Dubai for the first time on December 28, local media reported.

Mac S. Far, the managing director of Alchemy Project, told Dubai-based Gulf News that “we are extremely excited to bring this amazingly versatile artist to Dubai.”

“Nicki Minaj is currently one of the top three world musicians. We had an unprecedented fan-base request and without exaggeration, this could be the most attractive solo concert of the year,” he added.

Minaj has been labeled a controversial character as of late, following her public feuds with fellow celebrities such as co-American Idol judge Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga.

She has sold millions of copies of her debut album “Pink Friday” which was certified platinum by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in November 2010.

The Trinidad and Tobago native has enjoyed success in the Bilboard Hot 100 charts for being the first solo female rapper to have seven singles in the charts at one time. Minaj’s seventh single, Super Bass, has been crowned quadruple-platinum by the RIAA, and has sold more than four million copies, making it one of the best-selling singles in the United States.
