The cast for Nicki Minaj‘s forthcoming ABC Family series is shaping up nicely. Whoopi Golberg will be part of the series, playing the neighbor of a young Onika Maraj in Nicki

Reports Vulture:

Nicki will star Ariana Neal (Get Hard, Fruitvale Station) as Nicki when she was still Onika Tanya Maraj; Selita Ebanks (Real Husbands of Hollywood) as her mom Grace; Wesley Jonathan (The Soul Man) as her dad Vincent; and McCarrie McCausland (Army Wives, The Originals) as her brother Jaylen. Best of all, Whoopi Goldberg will play Miss Martha, a neighbor who will surely be saltier than beef roti.

Recently, Minaj took to Instagram that she handpicked the cast herself, noting she was blown away by Ariana Neal.
