Superstar Rapper, Model, and Entrepreneur Nicki Minaj is known for surprising stunts which leave audiences amazed but this time she is stunning the world in a different way. Recently, she took to Twitter an announced she would help struggling college students pay off their tuition if they could present report cards with A’s.
A fan sent Nicki a meme jokingly asking her to help her pay her remaining college fees. Nicki didn’t find it funny. As a matter of fact, she thought it was a great idea. She replied to the young lady’s tweet, 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. Should I set it up?
Artavion Cook doesn’t just like Nicki Minaj because she paid off his tuition. He has been a die hard fan of hers for years. I love everything about Nicki. I love how she’s so unapologetic. She’s such a boss when it comes to how she carries herself. She demands men to respect her, he said. She’s always encouraged her fans to stay in school because she couldn’t afford to go to school. I also love that she’s a successful female rapper in a male driven industry. He says because she is so successful in the Pop Community she is sometimes discredited as a great lyricist but the world should know she is a boss.
While some students were awarded $500. Others only needed books paid off. A few of the students needed large sums of money and they were surprised Minaj paid their balances off. I owed my school $1,172.95 because Louisiana recently cut our TOPS scholarships, which actually has caused a lot of students to have to withdraw from school. So, I was honored to have received the notification from her that she would pay for my school. I could not register for classes for next semester until balance was paid, said Artavion.
I received confirmation through the University of Louisiana at Lafayette that Artavion Cook’s balance of $1,172.95 has been cleared. Minaj announced on Twitter that she may to do it all again in a month.
