3 September 2013

Washington, Sept. 3 (ANI): Kanye West has been condemned by human rights groups for performing for the president of Kazakhstan, who is considered to be an ardent dictator and torturer.

The rapper allegedly pocketed 3 million dollars for singing at President Nursultan Nazarbayev's family wedding in a hotel in Almaty on Saturday, Contactmusic reported.

In a new footage, which was posted online by one of the guests present at the function, the new father can be seen belting out his hit song 'Can't Tell Me Nothing'.

Kate Allen of Amnesty International asserted that Kazakhstan is a country where Amnesty has concerns about the use of torture.

According to monitoring organisation Human Rights Watch, critics of the Kazakh government are jailed and strict controls are imposed on the media (ANI)
