Here are Kenyan students in Nicki Minaj’s scholarships give away
Kenyans students are taking part in a global online competition that will see the winners awarded scholarships by rapper Nicki Minaj.
Dubbed the #StudentoftheGame competition, students are expected to share an update tagging the American rapper with full information on how much they need and for what institution and course.
Nicki said she would favourite tweets of likely winners and later direct message the winners for details to be used to confirm with their academic institutions.
Last year, the rapper awarded several US students who had straight As.
Kenyans are trying their luck in this year’s competition and among those who have made an entry is Vivianne Ouya who has been accepted at Ulster University, Northern Ireland to pursue a masters in Gender, Conflict and Human Rights.
Ms Ouya has been on a mission to ensure Nicki notices her entry and has been tagging Kenyan celebrities urging them to retweet and tag Nicki as well.
