Minaj will be Executive Producing the show about her childhood in Queens with her Trinidadian family. They’re holding an open call for young Nicki Minaj from now through Sunday, November 15th! All you need to do if there’s a young girl in your life who’d be perfect for this is download the free Disney Applause app. Once on there, click on “ABC Family’s Online Open Call” and follow the instructions.
