Nicki Minaj on J’Ouvert: Change the rum name

T&T born and bred U.S rapper, Nicki Minaj came to the rescue of angry Trinbagonians and West Indians who found Michael B Jordan’s was wrong to name and trademark his rum J’Ouvert.

Minaj in an Instagram post reposted a full description of what J’ouvert means to the country and its origins and why claiming it as foreign or the name unknown can be offensive to the Caribbean.

Minaj in her caption said “I’m sure MBJ didn’t intentionally do anything he thought Caribbean ppl would find offensive – but now that you are aware, change the name & continue to flourish & prosper 🙏🏽🇹🇹“


Several T&T natives agreed with Minaj in her comment section after she made the post.
