Nicki Minaj  is the queen of rap and goddess of sass. That’s all we know about the famous rapper who swayed the world with many hits like Anaconda, Bang Bang, Super Bass, among others. But as they say, the things we know about people are just a tip of the iceberg, the rest remains mostly undiscovered. But lately, the famous singer is helping us to know her other side – the humanitarian Nicki Minaj.

A few days ago, the American rapper gave her fans a fabulous surprise on Twitter. She agreed to pay student loans, pending bills, tuition fees if they could show her A grades and a school verification. She literally gave thousands of dollars to students and promised to do more. What a great way to support education, isn’t it?

While we were still drooling over the lovely side of Nicki Minaj, the 34-year-old singer through a series of revelations on Instagram gave us more reasons to do so. Nicki revealed that she has been sending money to an unnamed village in India over the last few years. She has helped the village gain access to basic but rare amenities like clean water, technology and most importantly, education. In a video she posted on Instagram, an Indian man surrounded by village women is showcasing the newly installed hand pump.


Along with the video, she wrote:

This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I’ve sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don’t even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I’ll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you’d like to be a part of it. Love

She also shared a picture, in which the village women are being presented with sewing machines.

She wrote:

I’m so proud of our sisters in India. God is so good. Their desire was to have water wells & places where they can worship, places where they can learn technology, computers, reading, etc. We’re just getting started. These women are us and we are them!

The video has garnered almost 3M views and people all across the world are rooting for Nicki and her amazing work. Indians were extremely overwhelmed and thanked the rapper-

“Omg, this really hit my heart doing this to India, you the best!”

“thank u @nickiminaj ….give a chance to welcome u in India…!!!!”

“Thanks, Niki Minaj .for helping our people, such a great human you are!”

“What a blessing! thank you for sharing your amazing gesture and deed of kindness … may there be many out there who will continue to help the less fortunate”
