Kim Kardashian’s appearance on Sunday as a co-host in Nigerian singer Darey’s LLAM concert has been slammed by many disappointed Nigerians, especially after it was revealed that she was paid $500,000 to co-host the show.
Kim reportedly spent ONLY 45 SECONDS on stage to open the show … and immediately after, she hopped into a plane back to the US. Her ‘flash’ appearance left many disappointed, cos they were made to buy tickets at a stunning cost of $625 (100,000 naira) just to see her co-host the show to the end.
In summary, Kim Kardashian reportedly spent ONLY 45 MINUTES in Nigeria!
A popular columnist for Nigerian newspaper DailyPost, had harsh words for her:
‘The major (if not only) flaw of that outing was the presence of Kim. If it is true that she was paid hundreds of thousands of Benjamins (aka US Dollars), it would indeed be appalling. We are talking about someone who shot her way to the limelight via the now infamous sex-tape which anyone can still download on the internet for free! So for the sake of money, we’ve sent our morals, decency and integrity on vacation.
‘Just few weeks ago, Miss Kardashian-West was paid $200,000 for a trip to Ivory Coast. She then proceeded to donate a meager $2,000 to a local orphanage, an amount less than one percent of her total financial terms (including flight, hotel and security charge).
‘Obviously Darey and his team wanted a name that would pull the crowd out of their homes. Question: Was that the best they could come up with? Whatever happened to female celebs known for their and hard work and larger than life persona: Alicia Keys, India Arie, Adele among many others.
As a humanitarian, it is sheer stupidity to think that a clique forming big boys would dole out all that money for below-an-hour attendance of an actress whose only movie to her credit is a pornographic motion picture. It would have made more sense if she stayed throughout the event, to at least justify the huge amount spend on her appearance.’
Many other popular columnists in the nation’s leading newspapers also joined in the blasting … and trust Nigerians on the internet – she has been called unprintable names like ‘fraudster’, ‘money whore’ and a ‘talentless b***h’ and all the other stuff we are so familiar with. Besides, Kim has become a subject of ridicule in the Nigerian social community.
Despite everything however, Darey’s concert was regarded as ‘one of the best,’ with most of the critics agreeing that Kim shouldn’t have come to Nigeria in the first place.
‘There was absolutely no need for Kim Kardashian at Darey’s concert,’ they said.
