Who says that looks tell all? Nicki may look like a tough cookie, but there are moments when she could really be a softie on the inside. Just recently, the award-winning rapper has volunteered to pay for the college tuition fees and even the student loans for several of her fans.
The singer made the announcement on her Twitter account. But of course, it was not without its conditions. Minaj made the offer only available to those who have a score of 4.0 GPA and can provide confirmation from their schools.
Minaj interacted with fans on her Twitter account late Saturday evening until the early morning. The series of tweets that were posted by the singer came after she promoted a contest for a fan to come and join her at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas later in May. Word got out quickly where fans were tweeting Minaj with the hashtag #NickiBBMAs. The multiplatinum artist received pleas to help them with their college tuition fees and some for their student loans.
Later, the requests turned into something else – some fans were asking for help for less than $1,000 that they plan to use for books and other supplies that they’ll need for school. Minaj looked like she gave in to some of these requests where she asked for their contact and bank info. By the end of the evening, the rapper announced that she will be paying for the tuition fee, student loans, and other education-related fees of 30 fans. The amounts ranged from $500 for books to $6,000 for tuition.
Minaj said that she would pay on Sunday and see if she still has money left after that. She also promised to conduct a similar event to help students pay for college tuition fees in about a month or two.
