When Nicki Minaj was mistaken for another female rapper, it was a humiliating experience for her.
She described her run-in with a fan who thought she was Trina in a TikTok video that she released.
Nicki stopped at a store while on her way home. The delighted cashier tried to catch her attention by whispering when she approached the register since he thought he recognised her and didn’t want to break her disguise.
So, Nicki recounted, “I lean in because it’s obvious that he’s trying to tell me something and I don’t want to talk too loud.”
The rap star believed he was going to declare his love for her. “Despite being so solemn, he was quite elated. I mean, of course, I’m a world icon superstar. I’m telling myself it’s okay.

But she wasn’t prepared for what he said after that. I’ve been listening to you all day, he says, leaning in and saying it very seriously. That old-school crap was his favourite, he declared. I was thus somewhat irritated. “That one with you and Trick Daddy,” he said.
When Nicki heard what she had just heard, she paused and discreetly deadpanned into the camera. She didn’t mention who he thought she was, but it seems like he assumed she was Trina, who frequently works with Trick Daddy.
After Nicki told the tale, her followers commented on it. One person replied, “At least he didn’t break your cover-,” while Skai Jackson added, “Not this man believing you were Trina. I’m sobbing.
