Is Nicky Minaj coming back to Dubai?

The Grammy-nominated US rapper, Nicki Minaj who released new album The Pinkprint at the end of 2014, has set tongues wagging in Dubai after a tweet she sent suggested her latest tour would be winging its way to the Middle East.

She dropped the massive hint of an upcoming UAE concert on her official Twitter account when she responded directly to a fan – or Barbiez, as she affectionately calls them – during a blaze of posts about upcoming shows.

Quoting user ‘@iAmLewinsky_’, Minaj posted: “Yes. I’m coming back to Dubai. RT @iAmLewinsky_: @NICKIMINAJ Why aren’t you saying Dubai

What’s On were quick to speak to all the major players in Dubai and Abu Dhabi’s live music business, but none were able to confirm they were behind a plan to bring the star to these shores. The companies behind concerts like that of One Direction, Drake, Robbie Williams and Paolo Nutini, were all as excited – and as in the dark – about the potential for gig as we were.

Should a date be announced it is most likely to be after August 18, when the US and Canada leg of her The Pink Print Tour. The star is currently in Europe, taking in the England, Belgium, Paris and more, before finishing for the summer on April 12 in Glasgow, Scotland.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Super Bass singer has performed on our shores: she was here back in 2012, performing at Meydan Racecourse.
