If social media wasn’t lately so saturated with Ishawna’s porno song disguised as something having to do with “Equal Rights”, you might have heard more about Nicki Minaj and Ninjaman. If even reputed news outlets like the Jamaican Gleaner and Observer weren’t so caught up with men going down on women and other forms of biting insects, the public would be properly informed about more important things that is taking place.
It is a known fact that hip hop is a child of dancehall. So it is not surprising that when a dancehall superstar is leading the effort to do great things, a hip hop superstar will follow suit.
While Ninajman is going around Jamaica helping the less fortunate, a movement the Don Gorgon started a few weeks ago, Nicki Minaj has stepped up with a similar movement of her own.
One of the most inspiring stories from the Ninjaman movement is him helping some children to go to school after their father became crippled as a result of falling from a roof.
Ninjaman understands how important an education is and recently Nicki Minaj process that she does too.
The 34-year-old rapper was chatting to fans on Twitter about her new single, Regret in Your Tears, when one follower asked her to pay his tuition. She replied: “Show me straight A’s that I can verify with your school and I’ll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?
Many of Minaj’s followers chimed in and the rapper ended up giving 30 scholarships to her fans toward their education with more to come.
Just Nicki’s scholarship giveaway is not a “30 and done”; the Ninjaman’s movement is also ongoing.
Why are fans not talking more about these movements on social media is startling. A little coverage here and there is all you see on social media.
If Ninjaman and Nicki Minaj were not doing this great work but instead a picture was leaked of both of them in compromising situation, it would have broken the internet. But that is Black people for you; we are experts at folly and foolishness but novices at substance and progress.
Big up Ninjaman and Nicki Minaj for the great worth they are doing; likewise, big up to Sizzla for his ongoing movement to reduce the violence in August town. Tek it to di whole entire Jamaica Kalonji.
