Nicki Minaj granted the wish of a young fan this past weekend by donating one of her staple pink wigs to Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson, a five year old cancer patient. Damiyah was diagnosed this past October and her wish was to meet Nicki Minaj and get one of her pink wigs.
Somehow, Washington Wizards point guard, John Wall heard about this story and campaigned, with the help of his Instagram followers, to help Miyah’s wish come true. He posted this picture of himself and the five year old with the following caption:
“@NickiMinaj #HelpMiyahMeetNicki #PinkWig4Miyah Fans I need your help to get my buddy Miyah’s wish granted. She’s a 5 year old battling cancer and her wish is to meet @NickiMinaj and get one of her pink wigs! I need your help, comment on this photo. @NickiMinaj #HelpMiyahMeetNicki #PinkWig4Miyah! Let’s get Miyah one of Nicki’s pink wigs.”
His celebrity and the efforts of his followers eventually got Nicki’s attention. She posted a message on Instagram. “Hi Miyah!!!! Let’s see what we can come up with for a pretty little princess ;)” And just yesterday, the rapper met one of her youngest Barbs and gave her the wig. Miyah gave Nicki a bracelet in return. (Awww!)
Nicki captured a couple of pictures from the moment, including a video of her giving Miyah some words of encouragement and advice.
She captioned one of the pictures, “Looks like operation #helpMiyahMeetNicki was a success! #PinkWig4Miyah~ Thank you @john_wall 😉 she’s perfect!
