Kanye West has apparently spent his Labor Day long weekend in Kazakhstan. He put on a private concert for the President of Kazakhstan’s grandson. The occasion? One of Nursultan Nazarbayev‘s grandsons was getting married. Video footage from the wedding concert comes from a studio photographer, who caught Kanye performing “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
At the moment, it is unclear how much money Kanye was given to come for this private performance, but the sum was likely in the millions. Nazarbayev, the first and only president of Kazakhstan, is believed to have amassed a fortune by funnelling money from his country’s oil resources into bank accounts in other nations. Kazakhstan is ranked 122nd in its corruption index, putting it near the bottom of the world.
Meanwhile, all three of Nazarbayev’s daughters are successful businesswomen who have all married wealthy husbands. The marriage that took place this weekend was likely that of Altay Qulybaev, the son of Nazarbayev’s second of three daughters, Dinara. She is married to Timur Kulibayev, the third richest person in Kazakhstan. The wedding reportedly took place at the Royal Tulip Hotel in Almaty.
