Nicki Minaj intrigued the music world when she burst onto the scene in 2009 with her eccentric style and was quickly dubbed 'the black Lady Gaga' as a result of the craziness.
It was not long before she debuted different personalities and channelled them in her songs, rapping in different voices. The most dominant persona is Roman Zolanski, Nicki's gay British 'twin' who battled alongside Eminem's alter-ego Slim Shady on 'Roman's Revenge.'
Roman also has a mother named Martha who featured as a Godmother in Nicki and Drake's 'Moment 4 Life' music video. There is also the saintly Nicki Teresa, popular Harajuku Barbie and Spanish Rosa, not to mention the original Nicki Minaj.
One personality fans do not get to see often is Onika Maraj, the real Nicki, who her musical peers say is one of the nicest people in the game.
Nicki announced earlier this week that her second album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will not only feature her British buddy, but also a whole load of new egos.
But which alter-ego do you prefer if any?
