Nicki Minaj is definitely one of the most successful rappers in the game, but who knew that musical talent actually runs in the family? Nicki’s mom, Carol Maraj, is getting ready to roll out her debut project this year, led by the recent single “God’s Been Good.”
Maraj doesn’t rap though. Her genre is gospel and she’s been warming up those vocal chords in church for years. “I’ve been writing my own music since 2004, but [more recently] I started to work on me and record some of my songs,” she told MTV News, explaining that she was inspired after hitting the studio to record backup vocals for a friend.
“That was my first time in the studio and I saw her doing her thing and thought, ‘Let me try this.’ I had my songs written down, and in my head, but that’s what gave me the motivation to record. I was very shy when I got to the studio at first, but it got better.”
It’s obvious that Ms. Maraj is very shy and soft spoken, but her passion comes across in the music and she’s already been performing her tracks at local concerts in New York. Upcoming releases from the Trinidad native will include more reggae and calypso influences, and you can always expect the music to be uplifting.
“‘I’m Leaving My Pain’ is my next single,” she revealed. “It’s [dedicated to] battered and abused women. It’s to encourage them to not embrace pain, and not chase it, but to leave it behind and head towards love. It’s a lovely song and I can’t wait to wait to release it.”
The mother of three is the founder of the Carol Maraj Foundation, which aims to help abused women get back on their feet, and it’s clear that she pulls inspiration from her work there.
“My goal is to enhance their lives as much as possible, to bring them to a place where they do see the light at the end of the tunnel – to help educate them and give them stability in their lives, so that they won’t return to their abusers,” she explained. “It’s spiritual and social enlightenment.”
Ms. Maraj is currently working on a remix to “God’s Been Good,” a music video to accompany the song, and she plans to release a full EP in September via Fame Star Records, which she co-founded.
While it’s still early in her professional music career, she hopes that she will eventually land features from Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson on her tracks, but Nicki’s moral support is all she needs—no collaborations necessary.
“My passion is gospel music and Nicki has her own passion but we respect each other, and whatever direction [we go in],” she said of her daughter. “When I did my first two songs I was on tour with Nicki and I played it for her, and she was really bopping to it. She liked my first couple of reggae songs—she was the first person in the family that I played it for.”
The music video ‘Áye’ by popular Nigeria artiste, Davido tops the list of the most watched video on video-sharing website, Youtube for the first quarter of 2014.
The video, directed by top Nigerian video director Clarence Peters, generated over 300, 000 views in the first week alone- proof that Nigerians still love music as much as ever. Also on the list are the videos of Tuface Idibia’s 2012 single ‘Rainbow’ and Flavour N’abania ‘Ikwokrikwo’ video, which featured 2013 Big Brother Africa winner, Dilish Matthews.
However, while music remains a big passion for many, Comedy skits are gradually finding their place into Nigerians’ playlists. For the first time since YouTube was officially launched in Nigeria, the top 10 most-viewed list has more comedy-skits than musical videos.
Topping the list of most watched comedy videos is the Deliverance skit featuring AY and Helen Paul. The video, which generated almost 300, 000 views in the first month, was published by AY’s AYTV. Other comedy videos that made it to the list include ‘Maga don Pay’ and ‘The Affair’ (both by Bovi) and the hilarious phone conversation between Uche the Etisalat Customer Care executive and the wife of a customer.
Globally, some of the biggest stars on YouTube are animals and pets. From hilarious videos of cats pretending to be dead, to those of dogs taking care of babies and elephants overturning cars, YouTubers around the world cannot have enough of the wonders of the animal kingdom. Nigerians seem to be catching this bug. An incredible video of a snake devouring a crocodile after a 5 hour battle generated over 24 Million views in its first 30 days with significant views from Nigeria included!
The list wouldn’t have been complete without the occasional national interest-type videos that many seem to love. The Boko Haram Confession & Deliverance shared by Synagogue of All Nation’s Emmanuel TV is one of these. The over 200 comments shows how much interest this video is generating.

SaharaReporter post photos of the chibok girls who escaped. The photographs, which was taken three days ago, surfaced three weeks since the mass kidnapping by the Islamist group. There is incredible sadness displayed, with many of those captured in the photos weeping openly. The images here were taken in front of the Government Girls’ Secondary School, in Chibok, with the remains of the burned out building seen in the background.
