Greetings Travellers!!! You ever wondered what Nicki Minaj really thinks about Trinidad and Tobago? Well she thinks it's a twin island filled with Civil war and bloody altercations like........ Liberia. The Trinidad born rapper, Nicki Minaj compared Trinidad and Tobago to Liberia on television on Wednesday. She said that she didn't think that she would have gotten out alive.
Liberia is known for having endured bloody civil war during the past two decades, in which more than 200,000 people died and a million sought refuge in neighbouring countries. The Tourism Minister Stephen Cadiz said that he couldn't comment on Nicki's comment on the “nothing” place she came from, since he was not sure exactly what location she was referring to.
Minaj, on the American Idol show last Wednesday, compared her own underprivileged background to that of contestant Zoanette Johnson, a Liberian refugee living in the US, the UK Daily Mail reported yesterday.
Minaj said, “I’m so proud that this place gives people like you and people like me, who came from absolutely nothing, a place that we didn’t think we’d make it out alive from, it gives us the chance. Thank you.” The story in the Mail said: “Trinidadian-born rapper Nicki Minaj wasn’t born with much, and she fought tooth and nail to gain her stardom. That could be why the Pink Friday singer got so emotional on American Idol this week, when a Liberian refugee, Zoanette Johnson, brought the house down with Circle of Life.”
Nicki Minaj, being one of the most famous Trinidadians on earth, is not really repping her country too well. Some people just wish that she was born in some dead beat country like Atlantis or something. But she is what we have and I believe that we should still support her. She is a child of the soil and only bad parents will disown their children. Are we bad parents?
