A few months ago the word got out that a sitcom based on the childhood of Multiple Personality Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj, was picked up by Freeform (formally ABC Family). Since the announcement I’ve been waiting to see who they would be casting as Little Nicki. The wait is over because they have selected the cast for the upcoming “Nicki”.
First for the title role and the moment we’ve all been waiting on…DRUM ROLL PLEASE…The role for the future Harajuku Barbie goes to 11yr old Ariana Neal!!!
“I literally cried watching her taped audition. I demanded to meet her!” captioned Nicki on an Instagram photo of Neal
The cast consists of Selita Ebanks as Grace, Nicki’s mom, Jonathan Wesley as Nicki’s dad, Vincent, and McCarrie McCausland, as Jaylen, Nicki’s older brother. Whoopi Goldberg is also set to guest star as one of the Queens neighbors, Miss Martha.
The show is set to start filming this month. No air date has been set yet. I personally can’t wait to see what they do with this idea. With the success of shows like “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Fresh Off the Boat” it’s a strong chance that “Nicki” is going to do well.
Who else is going to tune in to see what they do with “Nicki”?
What do you want to see most out of a mini Minaj?
