Onika Tanya Maraj Biography| Nicki Minaj Biography

Onika Tanya Maraj was born on December 8, 1982, in Saint James, Trinidad, and Tobago. Her father was Robert Maraj (1956-2021), a financial executive and part-time gospel singer of Dougla (Afro-Trinidadian mother and Indo-Trinidadian father) descent.

Her mother, Carol Maraj, is also a gospel singer with Afro-Trinidadian ancestry. Carol worked in payroll and accounting departments during Minaj’s youth.

Minaj’s father was addicted to alcohol and crack cocaine and had a violent temper, burning down their house in December 1987. She has an older brother named Jelani, a younger brother named Micaiah, and a younger sister named Ming.

Nicki Minaj moved with her family to Queens, New York, when she was 5 years old. Minaj’s mother, Carol Maraj, was working numerous jobs in Saint James before getting her Green Card at the age of 24. She then moved to the Bronx in New York City to attend Monroe College leaving both Minaj and Jelani in Trinidad with their grandmother.

At the age of 19, as she struggled with her acting career, she worked as a waitress at a Red Lobster in the Bronx but was fired for discourtesy to customers. 

She said she was fired from “at least 15 jobs” for similar reasons. Other jobs included customer service representative and office management on Wall Street. Minaj recalls buying a BMW as a 19-year-old with the money from waitressing
