Kanye West - Kanye West Banks Millions In Wedding Gig For President Of Kazakhstan

Rapper Kanye West turned wedding singer on Saturday night (31Aug13) after the president of Kazakhstan invited him to perform at his grandson's wedding for a seven-figure sum.

The Stronger hitmaker flew into Almaty this weekend for the one-off gig and hit the stage at the Hotel Royal Tulip to celebrate the new addition to President Nursultan Nazarbayev's family.

A video clip of the show has since surfaced online on Instagram.com, featuring West belting out his song Can't Tell Me Nothing, and according to Tmz.com, the trip to Central Asia was well worth it - he reportedly banked an estimated $3 million (£2 million) for the set.
