Nicki selected close to 30 students to help out.
Nicki Minaj offered fans some assistance with their college tuition fees Saturday night, as long as they could provide evidence of their expenses. Replying to one fan who asked about assistance with her school costs, Minaj offered to set up a "contest" for the cause. Pretty soon she was overwhelmed with requests from struggling students.
Nicki replied to a great deal of the tweets, some of which were simply asking for help paying for textbooks while others were hoping for subsidized tuition. Minaj was happy to help anyone who could show her proper proof of straight-A grades and their fees. She replied to close to 30 people, agreeing to pay as much as $6,000 to one fan in need.
