Although Nicki Minaj may have pulled out of performing in Saudi Arabia, it has not stopped organisers of the Jeddah World Fest from inviting A-list superstars to perform in the country.
The organisers have invited Janet Jackson along with American rappers 50 Cent and Future to perform in the Kingdom.
“We can’t wait to see this incredible icon in Jeddah,” the Jeddah Season Twitter account said of Jackson, one of the most successful female solo acts of all time. All three stars will be performing in Saudi Arabia for the first time.
The concert which will happen on tomorrow (Thursday) will also include performances from musician Steve Aoki and singer Liam Payne.
The music festival is part of the Jeddah Season of activities which falls under the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage’s (SCTH) ambitious program of seasonal entertainment for the Kingdom.
