Nicki Minaj kicked off the first leg of her PinkPrint Tour in Johannesburg, South Africa last night. After performing live for thousands of screaming fans at the TicketPro Dome, she took to Instagram writing - "Dear South Africa, I am deeply in love with you. Can't thank you enough for tonight."

I was about to leave when I saw these two pretty little girls who had waited for hours. Had a lil chat w/them, they were so smart & vibrant. Dad looks mean but he was all smiles before & after the pic lol. Mom was sweet. South Africa
