US singer Nicki Minaj has said she will pay for some of her fans’ college tuition fees if they can prove they have achieved top grades at school.
The 34-year-old agreed to donate thousands of dollars to 30 fans – and promised more in the future.
Minaj had been posting on Twitter about a competition giving fans a chance to meet her but one of her followers asked instead for help paying college fees.
🤴🏽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?
The rapper tweeted: “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?”
Other students then joined in, detailing their financial situations, fees and grades.
One even asked for $6,000 (£4,600) to cover his classes, accommodation, food and books.
Minaj replied: “Ok, I’ll pay it. If you have proof.”
At the end of the Twitter session, she signed off, saying: “Ok u guys. It’s been fun. Let me make those payments tmrw then see if I have any money left.” She added a laughing emoji.
“I’ll do some more in a month or 2,” she added.
