Apart from music, Minaj has appeared in several Hollywood films and has her own radio show.

However, it was not clear whether or not the post was serious, but TMZ reports that, despite the announcement, Nicki has been making music in the studio over the last few weeks, and has made plans to record with several other artists in the past few days. She also reportedly has studio time booked until next month.

The sources claim that the reason behind her sudden decision to step down is because she’s becoming “increasingly fed up” with online trolls who have been harassing her.
