Here's Why Nelly Is Performing An Upcoming Show For Just Men

Here's Why Nelly Is Performing An Upcoming Show For Just Men”

Rapper Nelly is to perform in Saudi Arabia next month, but his planned concert in the ultraconservative kingdom is not being welcomed by everyone.

The rapper, famous for songs like "Hot in Herre" and "Country Grammar", will perform alongside Algerian singer Cheb Khaled in a December 14 concert in Jiddah. Performing in one of the first public concerts held in Saudi Arabia since the early 1990s, Keith appeared alongside a flutist on the same weekend that President Donald Trump was in town. The country's newly established General Entertainment Authority has worked to promote leisure activities in recent months with a budget of roughly $3 billion.

Though it may be positive news for some as concerts and musical events are rare in the kingdom, the country's women residents are not happy as it is going to be a male-only concert. "There were only four or five things that I could play that were famous", he told The Atlantic. Nelly also has a lot of songs about smoking weed and drinking alcohol, not to mention his song about women taking off their cloth.

Some Saudis on social media are pointing to the American rapper's 2015 guilty plea for possession of marijuana.

Recently, Nelly was arrested after being accused of rape in Washington back in October.

He is also still facing rape charges, despite the female accuser reportedly wanting the case to be dropped.
