Nicki Minaj has refused to take Covid-19 jab and her recent revelation about how the vaccine affected a friend’s testicles has attracted the ire of US and UK governments.
Minaj rattled the governments of President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson claiming Covid-19 vaccines have adverse effects on recipients.
The US rapper revealed in a tweet that a friend of her cousin became impotent and his testicles became swollen after he took Covid vaccine.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied,” Nicki Minaj tweeted.

UK Prime Minister and the country’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty on Tuesday dismissed Nicki Minaj’s claim about Covid vaccine as outrageous.
Johnson further said he was not as familiar with the work of Nicki Minaj as he probably should be, a statement which rubbed the American rapper the wrong way.
Minaj responded to the UK Prime Minister posting an audio message in a fake British accent.
“Yes, hello Prime Minister, Boris, it’s Nicki Minaj—I was just calling to tell you that you were so amazing on the news this morning. And I’m actually British. I was born there. I went to university there. I went to Oxford,” she said. “I went to school with Margaret Thatcher. And she told me so many nice things about you. I’d love to send you my portfolio of my work, since you don’t know much about me, I’m a big, big star in the United States,” said Nicki Minaj.
President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci also termed Nicki Minaj’s claim about Covid-19 as a fallacy.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Fauci explained that there was no evidence that Covid-19 vaccines cause a loss of fertility.
“The answer to that, Jake, is a resounding no. There’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen. So the answer to your question is no,” Fauci said.
