A Student Challenged Nicki Minaj to Pay for His Tuition and the Rapper Agreed
All it took was one tweet from a certain CJ @cjybdesign challenging Nicki Minaj to pay for his tuition fee; and she, in turn, opened up her generous wallet and helped fans struggling with college expenses.
The feel-good story started when Minaj tweeted to all her international fans that she would pay for their airfare if they win a contest to spend time with her at the upcoming Billboard music awards in Las Vegas.
According to a report by The Guardian, CJ thought that while it is cool for Nicki to help fans all over the world with plane tickets, what about those that are struggling in the US and couldn’t afford to go to school? This prompted the tweet reply to Minaj “Well you wanna pay for my tuition?”
The rapper happily responded, tweeting “Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it.”
While her reply to cover CJ’s tuition was already noteworthy, Nicki even went further. On the same tweet, she asked other fans who are having difficulties paying education-related expenses saying “Who wants to join THAT contest?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?”
All it took was this one question and fans blew up twitter asking Minaj to pay for tuition fees, student loans, books, classes, as well as supplies and equipment. Most of the tweets got an immediate reply from the world-renowned celebrity herself.
Nicki pledged to help more than 30 of the fans who asked for financial support. A few included @MINAJstan who owed $700 for online classes, Amani @Amaniinthecity who needed $800 for summer classes and books, @Moonlight_Nerds who has a student debt amounting to $1,500 as well as PedroKenBarbNavy @mexican_kenbarb who was also asking for money to pay for his student debt worth $1,000, and many others.
After committing to tons of fortunate fans, Minaj tweeted goodbye and said that she’ll do the same thing “in a month or 2.”
