Nicki Minaj, Trinidad-born rapper, has officially announced her marriage to Kenneth Petty, her childhood boyfriend.


The award-winning singer took to her Instagram page on Tuesday to break news of the union to her nearly 107 million followers.

She shared a clip showing hats which read “bride” and “groom” and mugs that said “Mr.” and “Mrs.”

“Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19,” the caption read, in what appeared to be her new legal name and the date she made it official with boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

Quite a number of celebrity friends, including Christina Aguilera, Christian Cowan and La La Anthony have offered their congratulatory messages in the comments.

It seemed the newly married couple had deliberately kept the wedding ceremony out of public eye as it was largely unreported in several media platforms until her post on Tuesday.


Minaj recently announced her retirement from the music scene to pursue family life.

“I’ve decided to retire & have my family. I know you guys are happy now. To my fans, keep reppin me, do it til da death of me, in the box- cuz ain’t nobody checkin me. Love you for LIFE,” she had written.

In June, she had also revealed plans to marry Petty, saying they had obtained a marriage license.
