The ANCYL wants Nicki Minaj to give back her R10m deposit

Cape Town - The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) wants Nicki Minaj to pay back the money she received for her planned performance at the cancelled TribeOne Dinokeng Festival.

As per her contract, the American rapper got to keep the R10m deposit she was paid for the cancelled gig.

According to a report by Eyewitness News (EWN) on Tuesday, the ANCYL in Tshwane is now demanding that Minaj pay back the non-refundable deposit.

Channel24 reported in September that the inaugural music festival had been cancelled at the last moment after organisers blamed the City of Tshwane for not delivering the infrastructure development required to host the festival.

The City of Tshwane denied these allegations and said they did everything necessary to ensure the festival went ahead.

According to City Press, the concert, which would have been held from 26 – 28 September, sold just 4 000 tickets.
