According to TMZ, Kasakhstan president Nursultan Nazarbayev hired Kanye to perform at his grandson’s birthday Saturday night, and the grandson of a billionaire head of state gets what he wants.

No word on whether six-week-old North West made the 6,500-mile trip to the Almaty at the Hotel Royal Tulip, where TMZ says the party took place.

The performance set the president of the land of “Borat” back some $3 million, according to the report.
