Nelly Performs a Concert in Iraq to Support Victims of ISIS

Kenny Awotorebo

Nelly just performed a concert in northern Iraq for a social welfare nonprofit called the Rwanga Foundation. The Country Grammar artist performed at Iraqi Kurdistan for a charity concert in the city of Erbil.

Rwanga Foundation said that Nelly is “the first American artist to perform in the city’s 8,000-year-old history.” That’s a pretty cool accomplishment for the St. Louis rapper.

The purpose of the concert was to raise money for the peshmerga, the Kurdish fighting force that’s been fighting ISIS.
