She was born in Trinidad with her real names being Onika Tanya Maraj, Nicki Minaj is her stage name and one of her alter egos that she developed to cope with her troubling childhood.

She has always been passionate about music and even began playing the clarinet at a young stage in school. Her first hit song was the all-star song Bedrock that had her fans hooked on her vocal prowess. After that she went on to produce more group and solo acts that increased her money bags and star popularity, within a short period of time, everybody wanted her to do a collaboration with them due to her increasing demand. This popularity also increased her bank balances by having many and more expensive performances.
