Feb 27 - Kim Kardashian was paid $500,000 to make 45 secs appearance on stage in Nigeria?
 

 
Africans lost...

Following her controversial trips to the Middle East and the Ivory Coast earlier this year, the reality star headed to Nigeria on Sunday.Despite staying less than a day in the city of Lagos, she was paid a reported $500,000 for her fleeting visit, angering some commentators in the African country.Kim’s visit to Nigeria unfortunately coincided with the kidnapping of seven foreigners, including one Briton, by armed men in the north of the country. An Islamist group later claimed responsibility.

Hiding her bump: A fresh-faced Kim wore a white shirt that covered her pregnancy curves
The mother-to-be was billed to ‘co-host’ the Love Like A Movie event with African R’n’B crooner Darey Art-Alade, for which tickets cost N100,000, or $640.

But according to local reports Kim stayed at the event for 45 minutes, making a 45-second statement on the microphone.

Independent Nigerian TV station Channels Television reported: ‘There were disappointments after Kim Kardashian came on stage for only 40 seconds.’

The channel posted pictures of the smiling star wearing a black leather dress, posing alongside the performers including 2Face, Waje, Banky W, Ice Prince, Mo’Eazy and Zaina.

Guardian blogger Jeremy Weate described how Kim’s visit was an example of the country’s economic elite ‘blowing its money on bling puffery while most of the country suffers’.

He wrote: ‘Ms Kardashian appeared, said, “Hey Naija” and vamoosed. The rumour was that she’d been paid 500,000 Benjamins for the honour of mixing with the petro-class.’

Commentators in the country made reference to Kim’s infamous s3x tape as they queried why a woman of dubious ‘moral rating’ should be in the country at all.

This Day newspaper’s Eddy Odivwri wrote: ‘Many families are not exactly comfortable with her lifestyle, as she hardly cuts the image of a role model to a generation in need of a moral dress up.’

But Odivwri did welcome her visit as a sign that the country was an attractive destination to celebrities.

‘Despite what is considered as Nigeria’s many drawbacks, the nation remains yet a destination point to several international personages… the latest to visit… is Kim Kardashian, the world’s most famous American reality show celebrity.’

Lukewarm reception: Not everyone was happy about Kim’s well-paid trip to Nigeria
Kim was criticised for her brief marriage to Kris Humphries, with Charles Mgbolu for AllAfrica writing: ‘It is uncertain how much Kim is loved in Nigeria as she fell sour to a lot of her fans after her divorce with former hubby Kris Humphries in a marriage that lasted barely 72 days.’

Never mind that there are rumors of that Kardashian was paid $500,000, at least one Nigerian newspaper sees Kim as the sign that Nigeria is a draw for the rich and famous. This Day‘s Eddy Odivwri writes:

Despite what is considered as Nigeria’s many drawbacks, the nation remains yet a destination point to several international personages, including entertainment celebrities, music stars and exponents. The latest to visit Nigeria is 32-year-old Kim Kardashian, the world’s most famous American reality show celebrity.
“World’s most famous American reality show celebrity,” kind of sounds like the way you’d describe the best house on a terrible block.

Kim Kardashian Is a Lot That’s Wrong American Morals

Though Odiviri seems to laud Kardashian and think her visit is a good thing, he quickly points out that the reason why Kardashian initially famous in the first place isn’t lost on Nigerians. “But many families are not exactly comfortable with her lifestyle, as she hardly cuts the image of a role model to a generation in need of a moral dress up,” Odivwri writes, and adds:

Those who so believe, point to the name of her blog ‘Wetpoint’, which they say, is suggestive of a lewd nuance. Many families drew their conclusions of Kardashian’s moral rating after she produced the controversial s3x tape which was considered a promotion of loose moral fibre. That’s curious because in America, Kardashian has more or less shrugged off the ill-effects of that s3x tape and is better known for annoying us through her plethora of reality television shows.
And apparently, Nigerian are either big fans of Kris Humphries or just don’t like divorcees. “It is uncertain how much Kim is loved in Nigeria as she fell sour to a lot of her fans after her divorce with former hubby Kris Humphries in a marriage that lasted barely 72 days,” writes Charles Mgbolu for AllAfrica.

Kim Kardashian Is Scamming Nigerian Scammers

“As the disgruntled tweets flowed out on my timeline, I thought of Special K, comfy in her jimjams, the plane rising gradually above the Atlantic, safe from all Lagos harm, smiling to herself that she’d actually 419’d the 419ers,” writes Jeremy Weate for the Africa Is a Country blog. There’s a tad bit of explaining here. The 419ers he’s referring to is the slang for the Internet scammers from Nigeria who send us all those emails with elaborate stories that promise us riches for just a little cooperation (and money). By getting paid a ton of money but only staying at the event for a little while, Kardashian had pulled off a bit of a scam herself:

The rumour was that she’d been paid 500,000 Benjamins for the honour of mixing with the petro-class. She arrived on Saturday evening (on Air France), and left within twenty-four hours (someone Instagrammed her back at MMIA). Prole class tickets were apparently N100,000 ($640), although quite a few got in gratis on the guest list.
So essentially, Kardashian swindled the people wealthy enough and dumb enough to spend a lot of money on tickets to see her, the way Weate believes wealthy Nigerians have screwed the poor.

Kim Kardashian Is Why Nigeria Needs to Foster Homegrown Talent

Over at GhanaCelebrities.com, a Ghana-based celebrity photos site, they were upset with Kardashian’s appearance, but for a different reason: national pride.

My questions is; what is wrong with us Africans? When did Kim Kardashian become so good at hosting that she has to be paid thousands of dollars and be brought to Nigeria to handle a concert? Couldn’t Nigerians have found a beautiful lady with far more skills than Kim K. to do the same job?
Entertainment blogger Obehi Okoawo, felt the same way but that isn’t stopping Okoawo from posting pictures:

Why waste so much fund in bringing the almighty Kim K to Nigeria when we have better, finner, s3xier, funnier and more intelligent celebs here? Was she worth the money spent in shipping her to Naija? I seriously doubt. SMH…anyway as soon as I can lay my hands on more pics, I ‘ll definitely post them.
Who Is Kim Kardashian?

Is she a reality show freak? An A-list celebrity? Perhaps the most knowing Kim Kardashian responses were the trolls on the Nairaland Forum—which sort of seems like a Nigerian version of Reddit, where they played a simple game of “Who Is Kim Kardashian?”

dont get mad at kim kardashian

get mad at the folk who paying 500k for an appearance by kim k.

i aint really trynna judge nobody, but personally i dont think it's justifiable to pay that kind of money for kim kardashian entertainment. I can't imagine an appearance by kim k being 500k worth entertainment.maybe if it was a concert type of event for a music artist it could be justifiable.

i actually want to see footage of this appearance to see if it was worth 500k lol.

lol you were trying to rationalize it in your brain by softening it.... I did the exact same thing....

50k for 45 mins.... That's a little excessive... But 500k for 45 SECONDS
