: There is a new report gaining MOMENTUM inside Nigeria - the report says that Beyonce and Jay Z received $1M that was designated for starving African children. They supposedly have DOCUMENTATION that shows the governor of Bayelsa - where 47% of the population live in poverty - diverted $1M in aid to Jay Z and Beyonce.
Here is what is being reported by the online news mag Saharareports.com:
SaharaReporters has uncovered a document indicating that a million dollars of Bayelsa State’s poverty alleviation fund was spent by then Governor Goodluck Jonathan on bringing American entertainers Beyonce and Jay Z to Nigeria in 2006.
In a letter stamped and signed by Bayelsa officials, N150 million (approximately a million dollars in 2006) was released from the state’s poverty alleviation fund for the first ThisDay Music Festival in Lagos.
The document came to light after a controversy was ignited over how much money American “reality TV” star Kim Kardashian was paid for a brief visit to Nigeria. . .
The sources who provided the 2006 document for Beyonce and Jay Z’s visit told Saharareporters that there was a shady financial link between the producers of some high profile entertainment events and the governors and other officials who control budgets at the state and federal levels. Mr. Obaigbena’s newspaper, ThisDay, is a major sponsor of entertainment events that brings US music stars as well as top public figures for flying visits to Nigeria in exchange for gargantuan paychecks. . .
It's not clear what IF ANY laws were broken - by the promoters, Jay Z, or Beyonce.
