The Harajuku Barbie received a lot of love and support when she arrived back in Trinidad for a show on Saturday. Nicki left her home country when she was five, but still holds it close to her heart. Her mother Carol Maraj, pictured above, admitted even she was taken aback by her daughter’s rise to stardom. “She has always been talented but this success still takes me by surprise. We can see where she gets her looks from, because her, and her mom look like twins. If you notice her real last name is Maraj, almost like Minaj, but she changed it for entertainment purposes, Nicki was thinking about going back back to Maraj on the album, but people told her no because my fans like Minaj!
