The next time Nicki Minaj is online, make sure to join in the conversation, because you might just be luckier than you think. On Sunday, the rapper was interacting with fans on Twitter. The original conversation was about flying a fan to join her on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards 2017. A fan asked her if she was willing to pay college tuition. To the fan’s surprise, Nicki jumped at the opportunity to do a good deed. So she immediately had the tuition fee transferred to the fan’s account!
Soon, her Twitter handle exploded with fans asking her if she could pay off their loans as well. The Starships singer had once clause: the students need to have A grades. In total, she ended up paying for more than a dozen fans’ tuition money. According to those who were to receive the money, the amount has already been credited to their accounts.
Like Nicki Minaj, a number of other celebrities also shell out money for those who are in genuine need. Oprah Winfrey, of course, leads that pack. Rapper Chance The Rapper also donated $1 million of his own money for upgrading schools in the district he was brought up in. Beyoncé and Jay Z have set up funds for those in need as well, and also contribute a lot of their money towards those in need.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj says she’s going to be back again next month. And when she does, she’s sure going to have a lot of people clambering to get her to donate. It is estimated that the average student has a loan of at least $30,000 to pay when they finish their education. With celebrities like Minaj helping the cause, it could really reduce the growing debt in the country and encourage people to continue their education.
