Usher spent a fun-filled couple of days in Morocco as he visited the African nation to perform during their Mawazine Festival.

The singer was accompanied by his fiancé Grace Miguel and a huge entourage as they made stops throughout the city of Rabat. Usher went to old Medina where he danced with a local Gnawa group and also had some time to stop into the Mohamed V mausoleum.

While at the old medina, a small historical section of the capital city that houses many local vendors and cultural groups, Usher got comfortable with one of the vendor’s turtles as he played and posed with the little guy. A medina is culturally specific to most North African cities and can sometimes be less than a meter wide making it free of car traffic and in really popular areas free of motorcycle and bike traffic.
