Trinidad Accused Of Spending $869,000 On Nicki Minaj Concert!

Nicki Minaj’s homeland of Trinidad and Tobago has been accused of spending over $869,000 ($139,782 US dollars) on a concert featuring the singer last month.

The concert, which was also featured on the MTV documentary My Time Now, was held to launch the Ministry’s Localize It campaign. Although it does not explain the kinda cash they shelled out.

Expenses included local advertising costs of $150,000, culture costs of $26,000, a local fashion show for $60,000, boarding fees at the Hilton Trinidad for $60,343 and local artists fees of $40,000. And booking Nicki came with the whopping price of $382,000, which does not include her entourage and agent fees.

Unfortunately, not as many people came out as expected because the tickets were so expensive. VIP tickets cost between $250 and $450. Kids entry was $100 and $200 for the adults accompanying them. The best seats in the house cost $900.

It would be just a marketing mistake if the government was not accused of denying funding to youth organizations because of the cost of the concert.

Yikes! Hope it was worth it.

    Re: PEARY – Where do you get your info…the yellow pages. Impoverished…don't get us twisted with places like Haiti and Jamaica…they are IMPOVERISHED. Yes there are poor people there, but go read some books sweetie…we ARE the riches ISLAND in the caribbean. We don't need tourism to survive…we have oil, pitch lake (that you drive on If you live in the US)…and the list goes on. Oh, and we're the ones giving/loaning money out to caribbean islands when disaster hits. No one wasted money on this chick because they KNOW she is garbage…just like Rihana. Don't have a clue why they would think someone would actually spend that much to see this Bubble Gum Bimbo. That money is pennys compaired to the garbage the Ministers are blowing on themselves.

    Re: madamking
    noooo im really not.
    Trinidad isnt the richest island….google it.
    Point is, they shouldnt be spending that type of money on a concert, even if they were the richest island, which they arent, they should be spending it on more productive things. Its not like there the States or Canada.
