Nicki Minaj reportedly flew all the way to China to perform at a festival that was allegedly a scam.
The American rap star headed to perform a 90-minute set at the Djakarta Warehouse Project China festival but subsequently learned that the event wasn't as it had been advertised, Shanghaiist reports.
The festival was originally billed as a spin-off of the Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP), which takes place in Bali, Indonesia.

In a statement issued via BuzzFeed, DWP explained: "The event rumoured to take place in Shanghai on 17th and 18th of November 2018 is an unauthorized use of DWP trademark.
