Miss Onika Tanya Maraj has a message for all those hating on her twerking skills.
Yesterday, the 33-year-old rapper performed at the Tidal X concert along with an array of legends including Beyonce, T.I., Alicia Keys, and also Lauryn Hill — one of Nicki’s foremost idols. During her performance, Nicki treated her fans to some intense twerking session while dancing to Fetty Wap’s Trap Queen.
Clad in a lacy, sheer bodysuit and wearing nothing underneath except a thong, Nicki grabbed onto a chair and twerked away. Meanwhile, a close-up of the twerking was displayed on the big screens surrounding the stage.
See the video below.
Fans, however, were not impressed with her twerking skills and many took to social media to share their thoughts. Let’s just say the comments were very brutal.

I thought I was having a hard day yesterday but I saw Nicki Minaj trying to twerk & I realize there's harder things to do in this world.

Well, Ms Minaj took to her Instagram moments ago to respond to the comments and it appears the Ananconda crooner is less than bothered with all the hate.
It could all be so simple…but you'd rather make it hard…lovin u is like a battle…and we both end up w/scars. Tell me… who I have to be to get some reciprocity…see no one loves u more than me…and no one ever will. ~ YIKEEESSSSSSS ms Lauryn hill was so ahead of her time (and still is). Queen. Epic. The bar. The truth. The best. The greatest. The light. God pls bless her for what she gave to us all 🙏🏽 The miseducation of Onika 🎀
