Jay-Z & Kanye West Paid $6 Million to Perform at Sweet 16 Party

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
