Robert Maraj, Nicki Minaj’s father, was killed in a hit-and-run incident over the weekend of February 17th. The tragic news rippled across media networks as Nicki was mourning for her 64-year-old father.
To add to the despair, the man fled he scene and witnesses couldn’t make out a clear description. TMZ recently reported that the man who hit Robert Maraj has turned himself in. The arrest was made in connection to the incident and we now believe that it was the person responsible for striking the vehicle.
It’s a true moment when reality hits abruptly, there simply isn’t enough time to resolve or handle the situation. It is during these times where family time is most important. Healthy individuals are also susceptible of tragedies and so check up on some people in your life.
It is requested that the man keeps his identity a secret. Obviously, Nicki has spaced herself away from social media after not being active for weeks. No longer updating his statuses. There’s not much information on the relationship between the two family members, but we wish her well.
At this time, Nicki Minaj recently bore a new son with her husband Kenneth Petty. His name is still a secret to fans. Rest in peace, Robert Maraj and god bless the victims of hit-and-runs.
