He's a dad, a rapper, a fashion designer and now, a wedding singer.
On Saturday, Kanye West performed for Aisultan Nazarbayev, the grandson of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan's longtime president, The New York Times reports. According to TMZ, he was paid $3 million to do it.
Photos and video surfaced on Instagram of the rapper singing Can't Tell Me Nothing for Aisultan's guests. There were also photos of him at the Royal Tulip hotel in Almaty and again stepping out of a black Mercedes. Aisultan married Alima Boranbayeva, the daughter of an executive at a Kazakh state energy firm.
Nazarbayev has been under fire for human rights abuses during his 23-year autocratic rule, including a deadly police crackdown against striking oil workers in the city of Zhanaozen in 2011 that killed more than a dozen people.
Kanye isn't the only star to play for cash at questionable events. Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Usher and Mariah Carey have also accepted payment for private shows.
In 2011, Sting rejected an invitation to play in Kazakhstan. He wrote in a statement: "The Kazakh gas and oil workers and their families need our support and the spotlight of the international media on their situation in the hope of bringing about positive change."
