If a rapper was asked to pay for the college tuition of dozens of fans, what do you think the response would be? Fans found out when Nicki Minaj offered to pay upwards of $30,000 in fees, leaving her Twitter replies flooded with numerous requests.

The charitable act began in the early hours of Sunday, May 7, when a fan asked her to pay for his tuition instead of entering a contest to join her at the Billboard Music Awards May 21.

The offer set off a chain reaction of other requests.

Nicki swiftly responded to the fans, asking how much they owed and ensuring they had proof of financial need.

Minaj ended the money spree after relieving around 30 fans of their bills and noted more payments would be on the way.

Many Twitter users applauded Minaj for her generosity.

Some called out the hypocrisy of those supporting Minaj for doing something that benefits them.

Others used Minaj’s donations as proof of her kindness toward The Kingdom, the new name for her fanbase, which used to be known as The Barbz.
