Nicki Minaj showed up in a big way for one of her smallest fans over the weekend. Minaj met up with a 5-year-old cancer patient whose one wish was to meet the Young Money Barbie and get one of her pink wigs.
Miyah was diagnosed with stage 3 Burkis lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A few weeks ago, Washington Wizard’s player John Wall instagrammed a video message asking Minaj to make Miyah’s wish come true.
The “High School” rapper, in turn, posted an adorable video of her own on Instagram, revealing Miyah donning her new pink wig wear. “I’m so happy that you got your pink wig,” Minaj tells Miyah, who smiles and nods. “I think you’re beautiful without it, OK? But whenever you wanna play dress up and feel like a little Barbie doll, that’s fine. But remember you promised me that you were gonna stay in school.”
Spending time with Miyah was one of two big stops Minaj made in New York. On Saturday (March 29), she threw a 16th birthday party for her brother, Micaiah. The shindig featured a custom New York Knicks birthday cake and birthday messages from Minaj’s famous friends including Lil Wayne, Diddy, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.
“If you could only see how his face lit up when seeing these superstars. Lol. That’s all a big sister could ask for,” Minaj reportedly said.
Later in the night she posted a photo with her older and younger brothers captioned, “They can take it all. Just leave me with these two.”
