    With most people's minds still on her sexy show-opening set at the Billboard Music Awards 2017, Nicki Minaj is once again surprising the world. Just a few weeks ago the singer made news headlines when she offered to pay the student loans of fans, as long as they made straight A's.

    Before long the requests came flooding in and saw Minaj offering a variety of supportive donations — one fan received $700 for an online course, books and supplies to the tune of $500 were offered to another. One lucky applicant received a professional camera for their major in audiovisual media while several fans were offered the remainder of their student loans. After about 30 minutes — and having successfully redistributed a fraction of her wealth to studious causes — Minaj closed down her offer, promising that there would be another round of giving to students in the coming months.

    Now, Minaj has revealed that she has been making charitable donations to a village in India. Via her instagram account the singer revealed her contributions to the cause — sharing funds for a computer center, two fresh water wells, and a tailoring institute.

    Addressing her gram followers the singer said: "The money I've sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I'll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you'd like to be a part of it. Love."

    In a separate post she shared a photograph showing a group of Indian women praying in their place of worship, adding; "I'm so proud of our sisters in India. God is so good. Their desire was to have water wells & places where they can worship, places where they can learn technology, computers, reading, etc. We're just getting started. These women are us and we are them!"

    Earlier this year Minaj was the victim of a burglary when $175,000 worth of jewellery was stolen from her home in Los Angeles. It's easy to praise an artist when they're so clearly trying to live by example and to share their good fortunes.

    This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I've sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I'll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you'd like to be a part of it. Love🙏🏽
