Earlier this month the Washington Wizards player posted an Instagram video of himself and Miyah to get Nicki Minaj’s attention, promoting the effort heavily with hashtags like #HelpMiyahMeetNicki and #PinkWigForMiyah.
Miyah has undergone seven chemo treatments after being diagnosed with Stage 3B Burkitt’s lymphoma last year, and all she wanted was a chance to meet Nicki and wear one of those infamous pink wigs.
Fortunately, it didn’t take long for Nicki to respond. “Hi Miyah!!!! Let’s see what we can come up with for a pretty little princess. ;)” she tweeted on March 7, acknowledging that she’d seen the clip.
That meet-up finally happened over the weekend and it’s hard to say who had more fun — Nicki, or Miyah. The YMCMB rapper shared six photos of Miyah on Instagram, posing with that pink wig that she wanted so badly.
The photo spread was also accompanied by a video of the 5-year-old getting a little pep talk. “I’m so happy that you got your pink wig. I think you’re beautiful without the pink wig but whenever you wanna play dress up and feel like a little Barbie doll that’s fine,” Nicki told her. “But remember, you promised me that you were gonna stay in school.”
Oh, and she wasn’t the only one giving out gifts. In one of her photos with Miyah, Nicki showed off some new jewelry. “She gave me the colorful bracelet I’m wearing. I rlly love it,” she captioned the photo.
Although John Wall wasn’t included in the photo spread, Nicki did pose with his basketball jersey as a reward for his efforts.
