Hundreds of Barbz filled the Camden streets with the line wrapping around the block of Cafe Koko. While she showed up late to the noon start time, she made sure the Barbz were well-fed during their wait as she had pizza delivered and water handed out to the fans.

Based on social media posts, it looks as if Nicki Minaj arrived around 5:00 p.m. GMT. Some observers online speculated that if fans outside didn’t cooperate and form in one line, that she wouldn’t be coming out of the van and into the cafe for the meet-and-greet.

The Queens icon’s performance has drawn rave reviews from Wireless Festival attendees and she returned the favor by dubbing the audience to be “one of her favorite crowds” she’s ever rhymed in front of.
Nicki Minaj continued the party later into Sunday night when she met up with her “Do We Have A Problem?” collaborator Lil Baby at a London nightclub.
