Wait, was he performing for Borat??
We kid, we kid!
But innerestingly enough, Kanye West did make the trip to Kazakhstan to perform at the wedding of President Nursultan Nazarbayev's grandson.
Yeezy reportedly joined the party in Almaty at Hotel Royal Tulip where he performed many of his major hits. And if you know anything, you know Kanye hits are going to cost…
…and apparently it cost the president somewhere around $3 million! Just enough for baby North West's college savings!
And from what we hear, the president could easily afford that because he's supposedly worth billions. But he's not just some fun rich guy because he has often been accused of being a dictator who has rigged elections. There's also been some controversy about the alleged mistreatment of oil workers in the country - an issue that had Sting back out of a performance for the president.
We've gotta wonder if Yeezy knew the pot of controversy he was jumping into!
