Nicki Minaj Started Paying Fans’ School Tuition Through Twitter


Just when you thought celebrities didn’t care about ordinary people, here comes the queen of rap herself. Thirty-four-year-old rapper Nicki Minaj was quick to respond to a girl’s joke on Twitter,as reported by Upworthy.

One girl jokingly asked Nicki to pay for her tuition, but no one expected Nicki’s serious response. Faith in celebrities restored!

It all happened on Twitter. Minaj was promoting a contest on Twitter for a fan to join her at the Billboard Music Awards. Then, she also announced that she has enough money to fly any fan from any country to the show. A girl was quick with a joke on her part and asked Nicki an unexpected question. Herman said: “Well you wanna pay for my tuition?

Then Nicki’s tweet turned into something entirely different. It was no longer about the Billboard Music Awards. She said that any fan who can show her they were getting straight As, Minaj would pay their tuition. Isn’t that amazing? This is what Minaj tweeted: “Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious.”

After this, hundreds of requests rolled in, and the 10-time Grammy nominee selected more than a dozen lucky scholars to help. As you may expect, people started freaking out over her generosity and started tweeting furious gratitude to the rapper.


As a matter of fact, the U.S plight with student debts is real and it’s a beautiful thing that Minaj stepped in to help those in need. The average student loan debt in the U.S. is more than $30,000 per borrower for 2015 graduates. Moreover, 68% of students still exit school carrying a loan balance.

This may not be the proper way to get yourself out of the debt, but it’s nice to see people using their wealth to help others.

Nicki is not the only one doing this. Chrissy Teigen recently paid off a fan’s tuition to beauty school, and Chance the Rapper cut a $1 million check to help floundering Chicago public schools.


This didn’t stop her from promising even more money. She hinted that she might be back some time in the next couple of months for an encore.

Well done, Nicki, well done!
