Lady rapper Nicki Minaj confirmed on Twitter that she is gearing up to play Dubai for the first time.
The Trinidadian-born, US-based vocalist tweeted 'We're making a stop in Dubai. Yaay!' to confirm rumours that negotiations were under way to bring the star to Dubai in October.
Minaj, 29, stormed onto the international scene with debut album Pink Friday in late 2010 and is about to become the first female artist to have seven simultaneous singles on the US Billboard Hot 100.
