Nicki Minaj praised a New York security guard who allowed a fan to perform her track "Whole Lotta Money" inside a Zara store.
TikTok user Zha Chanel, a male-to-female trans, performed a karaoke rendition of the track inside the retail outlet. Normally, a security guard would eject a shopper who use expletives and other racy language.
Mall security Michael initially tried to shut down the filming, but he walked away when Chanel refused to stop rapping.
Michael later said he was unsure if he would lose his job if he forced Chanel to stop. His good deed caught the attention of Nicki, who shared the video on her social media.
"it's the security guard sayin 'y'all can't do that in here' while walking AWAY from the festivities," wrote the rapper, who later added: "Someone tell the security guard in that video I posted that I'm lookin for him. I wanna send him a gift for being such a sweetheart to one of my babies. [sic]"
After Nicki tracked Michael down, he told TMZ: "She said, 'If I like one of your photos, I'll get like 1000-plus likes, my phone is still buzzing'."
Nicki subsequently 'liked' most of his posts, which boosted his follower count to more than 9,000. She said she would also give him a gift for being nice to her fans.

Swizz, 42, began trending on Black Twitter for insulting Ms. Jackson. After the backlash, Swizz took to Instagram blog The Shaderoom to explain that he didn't think the good fit was 49-year-old Missy Elliott, whose name should not be spoken in the same breath as 54-year-old Janet.
"LETS BE CLEAR. I don't think Missy & Janet is a good match up at all! Much love to Janet she's ICON but I just didn't feel that was a good match up. Janet got hits on hits but she should have a better person to celebrate with that's all. Blessings...."
