The artist has been very active on social media in recent days as she partied with her fans and danced in the streets to soca music.
The artist shared a video of her performing the verse for her song “Shake The Place” with Machel Montano and Destra Garcia, where fans stood mere inches away from her. Minaj became animated as she sang the verse for fans.
She also wore a beautifully rich purple costume embellished with beads and stones from the band Tribe and a large feather backpack created by local designer Natalia Carimbocas on Tuesday, which was the day for the Carnival road march as thousands of people gathered in their skimpy featured or beaded outfits and hit the streets dancing and celebrating.
Minaj shared videos of herself on the celebrity truck entertaining fans for the second day in a row. Fans screamed and swooned at the artist while on the truck.
‘come out,” Minaj points to the crowd, and fans begin to scream in approval.
Nicki Minaj later came down to the deejay booth, where she and Machel gave a live performance for their fans. Fans can be seen dancing and rocking to the track.

The newspaper wrote that Minaj’s visit brings major exposure to the island given that Minaj has many millions of fans on social media and otherwise. Her presence is also expected to boost the country’s Carnival event.
