Paying for college can be a daunting task, but Nicki Minaj just made some of her fans’ pursuit of higher education a little easier.
According to TIME, after a fan tweeted her asking the rapper to pay her college tuition in the midst of a contest to join Minaj at the Billboard Music Awards, she responded by saying “Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?”
From there, the #NickiBBMAs contest turned into getting her attention to have her pay for fans’ college tuitions, textbooks and even student loans, says TIME, and Minaj responded asking some to direct message her with their contact information.
TIME reports that by the time she concluded the spree, “Minaj said she would pay for about 30 fans’ college tuition, student loans or other education-related fees. The fees ranged from $500 to books to $6,000 for tuition.”
Glamour says Minaj spent $50,000 in total paying for her fans’ education,” all of whom provided proof that the money was for school.”
Minaj’s generosity will not be forgotten, that’s for sure.
