Then came a reply by @cjbydesign to Minaj contest tweets: “Well you wanna pay my tuition?”. Minaj actually decided to do just that.
This sparked a whole different sort of challenge on Nicki’s timeline as more responses came, with fans of the “No Frauds” rapper sending screen shots of report cards, progress reports, and stories of financial hardship and educational goals.
Nicki replied to thirty fans, telling them to send bank account info for her to pay for their tuition, school loans, and needed equipment.
She ended the run of tweets with a promise of another round in a month or so, joking, “Let me make those payments tomorrow then see if I have any money left.”
