Watch the Throne? How about paying The Throne?
That’s exactly what billionaire Manchester Football Club owner Sheikh Mansour did for his niece’s Sweet 16, reportedly flying out Jay-Z and Kanye West, collectively known as The Throne, to Dubai earlier this month and paying them $6 million to perform at her birthday party recently, all according to reports.
The duo ran through their set for the Sheikh’s niece, performing a number of selections from their joint album; each artist was paid $2.9 million for their participation.
This comes after Yeezy and Hov were nominated for a combined 10 awards at the 2012 Grammys and their joint tour was listed as one of the top grossing treks of the year. —Jakinder Singh
