The question of how much Nicki Minaj is worth is undoubtedly among the common questions asked by many people today. Fans are curious to know more about the female MC’s ongoings. However, just like other artists, finding the right answer isn’t always easy, but we’ve got you covered, Nicki Minaj’s current net worth as of 2020 is $85 Million. Here are some of the other lesser-known facts about her.

Her Early Life

Nicki was born Onika Tanya Maraj, on December 8, 1982, in Saint James in Trinidad and Tobago. It’s easy to guess her age with the 1982 birth date. Besides being an accomplished rap artist, Minaj is also an actress, singer, and songwriter.

Her childhood life wasn’t easy and as rosy as her current life considering she was born of a father who was a drug addict, aggressive and abusive. As a result, Nicki moved in with her grandmother. At the age of 5, Nicki and her mom relocated to Queens in New York.

She attended La Guardia High School which is famed for producing great artists and actresses. In school, Nicki took up fictitious roles in plays that depicted her hard, cruel and abusive past. Nicki’s passion for music surfaced at the age of 12 when she wrote her first rap piece. After graduation, Nicki was focused on becoming an actress but her acting career never took off. She then took up jobs as a waitress, administrative assistant and as a customer service representative.
