Robert Maraj is Nicki Minaj’s father, who is a well-known artist all around the world.
Nicki Minaj was born in Onika Tanya Maraj on December 8, 1982, in Saint James, Trinidad, and Tobago. When she was five years old, she moved with her family to Queens, New York.
Minaj’s father was a severe drug addict. He was also a suspect of a murder attempt on his wife. Nicki says that this incident made her stronger and helped her to become more successful in her life.
Nicki Minaj has overcome a difficult childhood to become a successful hip-hop artist. These things didn’t affect her in building her career. She sure is a bright star!
Rapper’s father, Robert Maraj, was walking on a road in Mineola when he was hit by a car. After the hit and run, the anonymous driver escaped from the scene very easily.
Police said: ‘’Minaj’s father was immediately taken to the hospital but he was declared dead by the hospital authorities’’.
This is so sad, especially for the megastar. Things must be devastating for the family members. Sudden death can leave anyone in real shock, especially when it was accidental. Moreover, the escape of the culprit doesn’t give any respite to the star’s family.
Few witnesses may have come forward. The police are still investigating it. We can only hope that the witnesses have something substantial to say and the police carry on with the investigation.
A witness told, ‘’we just saw a jacket ripped open, cut open, trying to make sure the man had pulse’’.
According to the police officials, ‘’The driver apparently stopped the car for a brief second to ask the dead victim if he’s okay and then left the scene.’’
Minaj has not yet spoken about it because the news is very heartbreaking and painful. Nobody deserves to die like this. We hope the police find the culprit soon and give Minaj’s father justice!
We share our deepest condolences on the passing of Minaj’s father. May justice bring comfort to the family and eases their pain!
