Nicki Minaj Paid College Tuition Fees For Some Very Lucky Fans

Arin Spits / May 8, 2017

If you’re a Nicki Minaj fan, here’s something that will make you love her even more. Over the weekend, the Starships singer took to Twitter to offer fans a bit of financial relief when it comes to school tuition fees. The catch? You had to show proof of straight A’s and it had to be verifiable with the school.



That’s when fans started sending in shots of their report cards and accompanying stories of their financial troubles.


Nicki was going through and replying to a select bunch of users with requests around the $1,000 mark for various fees. One particular fan, however, Josh aka @GetChoLife1, asked for $6,000 which would cover accommodations, food, classes and materials.



The Trinidadian-born American rapper saw that it was a worthy enough request and deemed it acceptable. Hopefully Josh is getting that proof ready!



Of course, it’s literally impossible for someone to pay for every college student’s fees, nor should it be expected. After helping around 30 fans, she had to stop and joked that after she’s paid out the money, she’ll have to see how much damage was done to her bank account. It shouldn’t hurt too much and she even said she might do it again in the coming months.



We’ve heard of celebrities making donations to help out some great causes, but this one takes it to a whole new (and personal) level.
