Kanye West reportedly received a sum of around $3million to perform in Kazakhstan.
The Yeezus star was apparently drafted in by the country’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, to perform at his grandson’s wedding on Saturday (August 31).
According to TMZ, West performed some of his most famous tracks, including Can’t Tell Me Nothing, for the wedding guests.
President Nazarbayev is reported to be worth billions and Kanye is not the first superstar the governor is believed to have asked to perform in the country.
In 2011, Sting was invited to perform, but cancelled his performance in protest of human rights issues with the country’s oil workers.
Yeezy recently performed performed political tune Blood On The Leaves at the 2013 MTV VMAs last Sunday (August 25).
Bound 2, which has reportedly been chosen as the next single to be released from his Yeezus LP, is available now.
