Rapper Nicki Minaj for Sumfest

The organizers of Reggae Sumfest on Friday announced that Trinidadian-born rapper Nicki Minaj has been added to this year’s line-up of the annual festival scheduled for July 17-23 in Montego Bay.

Nicki Minaj (real name Onika Tanya Maraj) rose to prominence when her debut studio album, Pink Friday, released in 2010, topped the US Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America a month after it was released.

In 2009, two years after she released her first mixtape Playtime Is Over, Minaj — who grew up in Queens, New York — was discovered by American rapper Lil Wayne and was signed to Young Money Entertainment.

Minaj was the first artist to have seven songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart at the same time and was also the first female artist to top the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart with her single Your Love.

She was born on December 8, 1984 in St James, Trinidad and Tobago.

According to the Summerfest announcement, the rapper will perform on Sumfest’s International Night.
