Oh gawsh Nicki, ya know we love ya bad…! One of our favourite islandistas, rapper Nicki Minaj was in Trinidad recently shining the spotlight on her homeland by shooting her ‘Pound the Alarm’ video there.
A very good look indeed. We love islandistas who use their status to big up where they’re from. From the clips seen in the photos and the behind the scenes vid, she went fully Trini and was decked out in a haute red, black and white Carnival costume with hundreds of ‘revellers’ in costume and a phalanx of Trini soca stars including Machel Montano and Fay-Ann Lyons and Bunji Garlin.
Alsoooo fully Trini was de commess that followed the video’s production, with claims that a sub-contractor ripped off Nicki for over TT$100,000 and his counter claims that he was the one ripped off. But hey… yuh can’t have carnival without a little bacchanal ent?
