Video: Did CairoScene Inadvertently Help Nicki Minaj Top Egypt's iTunes Chart?
Nicki Minaj took to Instagram recently to thank all Egyptians for making her the number one single on Egypt's iTunes chart. However, she should be thanking us as we took to the streets two years ago to capture Egyptians listening to her for the first time.
Can you guess which musical superstar has topped Egypt's iTunes charts? On any other week, Amr Diab would be the safe bet, but in actuality, it's none other than Anaconda loving international sensation Nicki Minaj, who took to Instagram to personally thank all Egyptians for making her new single 'No Frauds' number one in Oum el Donia.
This news seems to have surprised other publications, however, here at CairoScene we feel somewhat responsible as two years ago we took to Egypt's streets to capture the reactions of Egyptians listening to Nicki Minaj for the first time. At the time, it seemed that many were baffled by what they were listening to, but clearly, Nicki Minaj's music managed to stick in their heads. We're not sure whether to pat ourselves on the back or to offer a formal apology.
