This is definitely not how that money should have been used!
Unfortunately, it looks like pretty damn important funds were misused in Nigeria back in 2006 under the watch of then-Governor Goodluck Jonathan.

It is unknown how much was exactly paid to performers at the event, and it is believed that they were not aware of where the money was coming from.

Considering 47% of Bayelsans live in poverty, we're pretty sure there were better ways to spend that money…
…no matter how awesome Beyoncé is.
