The rapper has responded to fans who have provided proof of their high grades.
Nicki Minaj has offered to pay for some of her fans' college tuition fees, provided they can prove that they are achieving top grades at school.
The 'Regret In Your Tears' rapper has taken to Twitter to lend a helping hand to a number of high achieving Barbz who reached out over the social media platform.
After originally posting about a competition giving fans a chance to meet her, Nicki responded to one user who asked her to pay for her tuition instead.

It wasn't long before more of Nicki's loyal fans came out in force, revealing to the rapper their financial situations, tuition fees and current grades.
Users including medical students, current college students and even past alumni who are still struggling to pay off their loans all tweeted their idol.
One fan was promised a sum of $6,000 from Minaj to cover their tuition fees, books, accommodation and food, if they could provide proof of their grades.
The 6k would be for my 16 credit classes, room & board, meal plan, technology fee & books that I would need for the classes. https://t.co/InZT6LSxOG— Josh Maraj. (@GetChoLife1) May 7, 2017
