Badu was last seen in Southeast Asia in 2012 when she performed at the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta.

That same year, she was scheduled to perform in Malaysia but was banned by the local government due to a photo that was published in a local newspaper showing her with a temporary tattoo on her body with the Arabic word for “Allah”.
