Welcome to the club! Nicki Minaj’s surprising new business venture

Nicki Minaj has just reported that she is going to follow in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian and produce a new mobile game. 

Ever since Kim somehow managed to add mobile app entreprenuer to her CV, there has been a seriously long line of celebrities wanting to get in on a bit of the action… not to mention cold, hard cash.

And this week, it was announced that Nicki is the new face of developer Glu's forthcoming celebrity-focused game, which is said to include her likeness, voice and creative direction. 

Glu's CEO Niccolo de Masi said in a statement: "I am thrilled to welcome the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj to Glu's growing list of celebrity partners".

The new game will not launch until next summer but Nicki has reported to be very happy with the venture. No wonder she's happy since Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game racked in a whopping €68m since it launched in 2014. 

It has also been reported that Katy Perry and Jason Statham are next the get in on the big bucks with a mobile game.
