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.

Thursday started out normally for Joseph when he took his 3 daughters, a 4-year-old and 2-year-old twins, with him to a Walmart in Potomac Mills in Woodbridge to cash a check.

Joseph, who asked that his last name not be published, told Fox 5 DC that he spent a few extra minutes in the parking lot buckling the girls into their car seats.
