Nicki Minaj, the popular Hip-hop star, has promised to pay university tuition for dozens of fans after a promotional contest metamorphosed over Twitter.
Nicki’s transformation into educational benefactor took place over the weekend as she unveiled a contest of the sort popular among celebrities seeking an online buzz.
She invited her 20 million Twitter followers to make their own videos for one of her new songs for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas to see her perform at the Billboard Music Awards later this month. But when one respondent said she would rather have help paying tuition, Minaj agreed. “Show me straight A’s that I can verify with your school and I’ll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious,” she tweeted.
