Nicki Minaj has offered to pay more than 25 of her fans’ student loans and other debts, and also get some of them into school.
In a semi-unrelated tweet the Queens rapper made about paying the airfare for a contest winner from anywhere to spend time with her at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, she apparently opened the gate for more philanthropy.
Just after midnight on Sunday morning, a Twitter user named CJ, who is also apparently a student working two jobs to pay for his college, replied to Minaj’s tweet and implied that if she’s flying in international kids, she should help him pay for his college as an American citizen.
“Well you wanna pay for my tuition,” he asked. Just six minutes later, she responded and called his bluff. “Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it,” she replied. “Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?”
Of course people hopped in and, as promised, she picked out a few other people and offered them assistance. 30 people in all got help from the queen including Liyah, Ashley and even a fan named Onika who asked for thousands of dollars in financial help in the form of cash to help them enroll, pay for books and even back loans before they returned to school.
