The singer Nicki Minaj will pay the tuition fees for 30 of her Twitter followers if they get A-grades. Ms Minaj will pay thousands of dollars if the fans show they got straight A's at high school. She will pay more tuition fees in the future. Minaj tweeted: "Show me straight A's that I can [check] with your school, and I'll pay." She joked that she might not have any money after paying. One student asked her for $6,000 to pay for his rent, books, classes and food.

At first, Minaj tweeted about a contest for someone to join her at a music show. A fan then asked if she would pay for his college fees and her tweets changed. Minaj has sold 20 million singles around the world as a solo singer, and another 60 million singles as a guest artist. A newspaper editor called her the most important female rapper ever. A Twitter user called her, "one of the most…caring and generous people" in the entertainment business.
