World Jeddah Fest is a music festival that will be held this July in Jeddah, Saudia Arabia.

However, one of the headlining acts, Nicki Minaj has decided to cancel her performance after receiving a letter from the CEO of the New York based Human Rights Foundation.

The CEO asked her to refuse the seven-figure payment from the Saudi crown prince as a symbol of solidarity with the ongoing suffering faced by the Saudi people.
