Renowned US rapper Nicki Minaj has marked her late father Robert Maraj's birthday with an emotional post on social media.
The musician lost her father to a road accident back in February, and the family incredibly misses him, which was clear in Nicki's message.
Sharing a photo of her father looking all swagged up in a T-shirt, sunglasses and a cap, the rapper noted how much she misses her old man.
"Happy birthday daddy. Miss you so much. So much. So so much. Rest In Peace. Oh my God," she wrote.
Fans of Nicki went on her comment section to celebrate Robert while comforting the artiste, who missed the chance of introducing her son to his grandfather when he gets older.
Briefly News previously reported that Nicki's dad died on Friday, February 12, after he was hit by a car in the streets of New York. Authorities claimed the man was on a walk when a car ploughed into him and fatally injured him.
Moments after the accident, Robert was rushed to hospital and pronounced dead on Saturday, February 13. She also broke her silence over the incident in an emotional letter in which the heartbroken rapper said it was the most devastating loss she has experienced.
Nicki admitted that she feels like calling him now more than ever.
“Though I can’t really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life. I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved and will be very missed,” she wrote.
The driver who killed Nicki’s father later surrendered to the police and was charged with tampering with physical evidence and leaving the incident scene.
