Nicki Minaj just paid for some fans' school tuitions

Kelley Robertson | 09 May, 2017, 02:32

Nicki Minaj has thrilled her fans by offering to help them pay for college expenses.

Soon, fan requests for help paying their tuition began flooding her feed.

Rapper Nicki Minaj won her Twitter followers over the weekend.

Minaj invited her 20 million Twitter followers to make their own videos for one of her new songs for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas to see her perform at the Billboard Music Awards later this month. "Dead serious. Shld I set it up?" she tweeted on Sunday morning (May 7th).

Minaj was then flooded with tweets from fans with ideal grades and student loan dramas, begging for her to assist them.

After a few hours of promising to pay for students' tuition, she said she would do some more in a few months.

Truly a queen through and through. Minaj extended the offer to other fans as long as they had all As.

Minaj tweeted that she will send money to the ones who can prove they have straight As. However the 18-year-old said Minaj has "always shown me love". "Well you wanna pay for my tuition", she tweeted back at the star. "Who wants to join THAT contest?!?"

In a semi-unrelated tweet, the Queens rapper made about paying the airfare for a contest victor from anywhere to spend time with her at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, she apparently opened the gate for more philanthropy.

Minaj has also been active with the educational charity, Get Schooled Foundation. "If u have proof".

"Ok u guys. It's been fun", she concluded. TMZ reported that two lucky Team Minaj members have already received payments.

After Nicki tweeted this, several of her fans made a decision to tweet her and let her know what they owed and asked if she'd be willing to lend a hand, and indeed she did.
