Internationally recognized singer, Nicki Minaj has revealed that, she intends to travel to Jamaica at some point this year in order to meet some of the Jamaicans she has only spoken to online.
Nicki Minaj joined dancehall artist Pamputtae in an Instagram Live where she talked about her love of Jamaican culture and wanting to visit the country.
Pamputtae is one of the few Caribbean musicians the rapper worked with on an extended version of “Likkle Miss,” along with Destra Garcia and Patrice Roberts from Trinidad, Lisa Mercedez from Jamaica, Lady Leshurr from Jamaica, Dovey Magnum from Jamaica, Spice from Jamaica, and London Hill from Jamaica.
In the video, Nicki Minaj shares how ingrained Caribbean culture is in her as she explains that her “spirit” has taken to Pamputtae.
“I might come to Jamaica this year, around December time, I might come. and I can’t wait to come and I can’t wait to meet you, you’re one of those people I can’t wait to meet,” she said on Instagram.
“First of all, I’m not a people person, I’m not a touchy-feely person, so if I think in my head ‘Oh, I can’t wait to hug this person that should tell you the spirit that’s comes out of you,” she added.
“I don’t like people touching me and I’m not a people person, I’m just a straightforward person and people can’t take that…I think what’s mean is phoniness, if you act like you know me and don’t like me that’s mean,” she said.
Pamputtae also expressed gratitude to Minaj for what is potentially her first chart-topping song as “The Fine Nine” remix entered the top 3 on the U.S iTunes chart on Thursday morning.
“Nicki, mi nave ntn fi give you to tell yuh thanks but mi can give you prayer,” she said to Nicki Minaj.
