Nicki Minaj's Mother, Carol Maraj Says the Power of Prayer and Tithing Contributed to the Success of Her Daughter

Carol Maraj could have been satisfied with giving birth to the Hip Hop sensation known to the world as Nicki Minaj, but the superstar’s mother has much more to offer the world.

Carol has plans to showcase her own musical abilities while praising God and helping victims of domestic violence along the way. For years, the world has experienced the hard hitting vocals of Nicki Minaj, 31, who has successfully released two number one albums and become the most-charted female rapper in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.

While The New York Times named Nicki Minaj “the most influential female rapper of all time,” it may have been her mother Carol’s Christian faith and prayers that helped propel the Queens, N.Y. girl born Onika Maraj into an international superstar.

“My life as a Christian and believer was opened to Onika. As her career continued to thrive, she developed more concerns about life,” Carol told The Christian Post. “She knew I believed in the power of prayer, therefore, she constantly called me and our pastor, to pray for different concerns she may have…I believe by her acknowledging the power of prayer, and her strong desire to tithe together with a praying mother, contributed to her success.”

Although some people both in and outside of the Christian community have been critical of the outfit choices and rhymes chosen by Nicki Minaj, the rapper has never shied away from being vocal about her Christian faith. Carol does not focus on the criticism of her child, but instead believes one day her daughter will use her voice to sing for God.

“The Bible says to train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old would not depart from it,” Carol told CP. “I trust that one day Onika will sing unto the Father, because a seed has already been planted. Nothing is too big to God.”
