Hip hop queen Nicki Minaj has been using her dollars and cents to support an Indian village.

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — In another example of learning to expect the unexpected, hip hop music artist Nicki Minaj showcased her true altruism when she revealed on Instagram this weekend that she’s been donating money to an Indian village.

“This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud,” Minaj began her post. “The money I’ve sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don’t even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I’ll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you’d like to be a part of it. Love.”


In a separate post, Minaj shared a picture of several Indian women praying in their place of worship. “I’m so proud of our sisters in India. God is so good. Their desire was to have water wells & places where they can worship, places where they can learn technology, computers, reading, etc. We’re just getting started. These women are us and we are them!”

It’s the second such public display uncovered from the artist recently — earlier this month, Minaj was found to have been providing aid to struggling college students across the country. She paid off several student loans and gifted others textbooks for their upcoming semesters.

“This makes me so happy,” she announced on Instagram. “[A few from the other day] I’ll do another impromptu payment spree in a month or 2 but pls know that I’m launching my official charity for Student Loans/Tuition Payments VERY SOON! You’ll be able to officially sign up! I’ll keep you posted!

Sunday, Minaj opened the Billboard Music Awards, performing alongside fellow artists Lil Wayne, David Guetta and Jason Derulo.
