Tyga Cancels Belarus Concert Criticized as “Propaganda Stunt”

The concert had been due to take place the night before the country’s high-stakes presidential election that could end the 26-year rule of its authoritarian leader, Alexander Lukashenko.

Rapper Tyga canceled his participation in a government-sponsored concert in Belarus after being asked by the U.S.-based Human Rights Foundation.

“I was looking forward to playing in Minsk for my fans in Belarus in the spirit of bringing great music to a market I’ve never played before,” the artist wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “My performance was not politically motivated and to avoid any conflict with the Belarus elections, I will not be performing on August 8th in Minsk. I hope to be back to play for my fans there at a future date.”

According to the non-profit organization, Tyga — real name Michael Ray Stevenson — had been scheduled to perform Aug. 8 at Hip Hop Fireworks in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, the night before the country’s high-stakes presidential election that could see the 26-year rule of its incumbent authoritarian strongman, Alexander Lukashenko, come to an end. The Human Rights Foundation claims the event is part of a “plan to distract protestors from gathering at opposition rallies.”

In a letter sent to the artist, the group says that the concert was “organized and funded by the Belarusian dictatorship, led by Alexander Lukashenko,” adding that, under this regime “there is no freedom of speech, no freedom of assembly, and no freedom of association.” – Source
