Mariah Carey who was in Nigeria for the Access Bank Christmas Party, had claimed in a picture she posted that she enjoyed every bit of her stay in Nigeria. Mariah Carey proudly posted a photo of herself in a slinky yellow dress and wrote, “Backstage in Nigeria”

Few hours after her post, she was attacked by a popular American site, Radar Online, saying that her visit was unreasonable and for financial gains.

According to the site, Mariah performed for the ‘money men in Nigeria – world’s centre of bank fraud and human trafficking.

The bone of contention is, Maria Carey should have done some homework before accepting the offer of performing at Access Bank’s Christmas Party.

“Ironically given that she was performing for bankers, it seems Carey wasn’t aware Nigeria is well-known as the center of the world’s email financial crimes! Nigeria is even part of the name as in “Nigerian 411 Scams, the site had queried.

“Nigeria is also, according to the United Nations, the hub of human trafficking as a source, destination and transit country.
And, just for good measure, there are mass killings going on in two Nigerian states right now, and according to Human Rights Watch, the violence is being ignored by federal authorities. “ the website further reports.

The publication generated almost a 100 comments, with majority of them pouring blames on Maria Carey and mocking Nigeria.
