A University of Louisiana student in Lafayette just graduated thanks rapper Nicki Minaj for paying his tuition fees.
Three years ago, someone on Twitter reached out to Minaj and asked him to help pay for college costs. Minaj agreed – on the condition that she shows her perfect signs. She wrote, “Show me firsthand what I can check in your school and I’ll pay for it.”
A few dozen fans took Minaj to the show including Artavion Cook. He asked on Twitter if she could help pay off his current owed balance of $ 1,300. She did, and Cook graduated this week with a BA in Biology.
“This day is even more special because NICKIMINAJ paid my tuition fees a few semesters ago, and today is her birthday!” He tweeted, according to the Daily Advertiser.
The newspaper reported that Cook is looking forward to medical school and preparing to take the MCAT in the spring. He’d like to go to LSU Shreveport, Morehouse, Howard University, or Meharry Medical College.
