It’s hard for women to make it in the rap music industry, as it has been a male-dominated territory for years. One woman, however, has managed to break through the barrier and overthrow most men. That woman is Nicki Minaj. She was born as Onika Tanya Maraj in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago, but took the famous name when she debuted her first album. In fact, most people who claim to be her fans do not know her real name.
However, her real name is not the problem, as almost all artists, regardless of their genre or country of origin, rarely use their real birth name on stage. The real question here is how much we really know about the social life of Nicki Minaj. Since most celebrities want to keep their social life private, this is usually not the case. The media know how to reveal their secrets and decipher exactly the things they would like to hide, better than they know how to hide them. In this article, we will tell you more about Nicki Minaj’s friend, her brother, and her mother so that you can understand them better.
Who Is Nicki Minaj’s Boyfriend?
At the age of 32, most people would expect this successful rapper to be married and have a stable family. Nevertheless, Nicki is not married yet and has not even a child because in her opinion she doesn’t want to be anybody’s baby mom. She made this very clear when rumors spread that she is pregnant after she introduced her newest boyfriend, Meek Mill, on stage as her baby daddy. Like any celebrity, Nicki has had a number of both serious relationships and the infamous occasional flings. She had a boyfriend who got her pregnant when she was just 15 years old, serious or casual. As any teenager tends to do, Nicki aborted the baby, and according to her, this is a decision that has haunted her for years.
Meek Mill is the stage name of Robert Rihmeek Williams, the 28-year-old American hip-hop recording artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the most recent friend of Nicki Minaj. The relationship began most recently after Nicki broke up with her 12-year-old boyfriend Safaree Samuels, also a famous artist. Recently Samuels released a song in which he “rejected” Meek Mill in an obvious attempt to hurt Nicki. This shows some of us that he still has bitter feelings about the breakup.
Some may ask why Nicki broke up with her long time boyfriend just to meet another man who is 4 years younger than her. In fact, most people (including me) believed that the two long-time lovebirds would actually end up getting married. The pace and direction of her relationship with her current rapper boyfriend suggest that she might end up getting married, especially after the recent engagement rumor that has fallen silent without much substance. The two recently revealed their plan to buy a house together. Perhaps they will move in together and plan a wedding after they have smoothed the waves of living together.
Nicki Minaj’s Brothers
Like the typical Milano girl, Nicki has a large family with four siblings, three brothers, one sister, and many aunts and uncles. The brothers are Brandon Lamar, Micaiah Maraj, and Jelani Maraj. The only sister is called Ming Maraj. Nicki loves her brothers and sister and often speaks well of them. She especially likes her little sister who she describes as so silly. She is also very proud of her other siblings.
Her life is very public and therefore she cannot hide anything. But she tries to protect her sibling as well as possible from the unattractive glare of the cameras. Her siblings also enjoy the fame her sister has achieved so far, but they do not want this to interfere with their private lives. The brothers have their own professions and are doing well both financially and socially.
Nicki Minaj’s Mom
Her name is Carol Maraj. Carol has a mixed afro- and Indo-Trinidadian descent. She originally came from St. James, Trinidad, and Tobago. This is where Nicki was born. She married when she was 20 years old and almost immediately had her first-born son. Nicki is her second child. She worked first at the Ministry of Labour and later at the National Insurance Board (NIB) as an accountant and at the National Commercial Bank (NCB) as a foreign exchange cashier. Not surprisingly, Carol is a singer, songwriter, and playwright who writes drama presentations for her church – now you know where Nicki got the knack.
Nicki Minaj is as active in her social life as she is in her professional life. Even though Meek Mill is four years younger than her, this doesn’t stop her from having fun and showing her relationship in all media for everyone to see. After the rumors about pregnancy were unmasked, it became really obvious that Nicki has moved far away from the naive teenager she was and has become a woman who knows exactly what she wants and isn’t afraid to reach for it or hold on to it until she gets it.
