During the 2022 Essence Festival held at the at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, there were many artists, including music legends who gave a good account of themselves with fabulous performances.
The likes of Mickey Guyton, Nas, Wyclef Jean, shock visitor Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, Bobby Brown, and many more showed how they are as yet, first class in the music business. On top of this, Nicki Minaj also displayed at the Essence Festival of Culture why she’s still ‘hot’ and ‘solid’ and in Charge.
As the featival’s headliner, Nicki Minaj overshot her booked performance by a fair stretch, with such a lot of energy in the air — both in the rambunctious arena and on social media. Inside the Caesars Superdome, scores of given enthusiasts of Black music and culture got extremely vivified to jams like F.L.Y’s. “Swag Surfin'” and Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares.”
When the 10-time GRAMMY nominee appeared — which was past 12 PM — some people opted to hit the ruckus streets of the Big Easy and turn in instead. But what a show they missed!.
In an opening video, Minaj moved around as she hit the stage, flanked by some incredible dancers. She played out some of her greatest hits — starting with her 2022 joint with Lil Baby, “Do We Have a Problem?”, trailed by her stanza on Fivio Foreign’s “We Go Up.”
Accordingly, fans got “Beez in the Trap,” from 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and “Faultless Remix,” initially with Beyoncé. And maybe the greatest shock of all — a tie with Wyclef Jean bringing out Fugees cohort Lauryn Hill earlier in the night — was guest and New Orleans’ native son Lil Wayne, who tore it up with Minaj on “Seeing Green,” “High School” and “Truffle Butter.”
The long wait led to an ever more generous show: Minaj capped off her headlining set with her immortal “Super Bass,” followed by “Moment 4 Life.”
As a matter of fact, Nicki Minaj carried back the ‘lay down’ with a bang, — by setting up a real show that kept people awake late.
Meanwhile, Minaj announced that Future could no longer join her on the NICKIHENDRXX tour as co-headliner after she postponed North American tour dates due to a postponed release of her latest album, Queen.
