Nicki Minaj has made a cancer-stricken little girl's dream come true when she presented her with one of her colourful wigs.

The Starships singer invited five-year-old Miyah Telemaque, who is battling Stage 3B Burkitt's lymphoma, to visit her in a recording studio in New York.

She reached out after US basketball player John Wall made a video explaining that Nicki was Miyah's idol and that she was desperate to meet her and wear one of the star's pink hairpieces, reported E! News.

Nicki shared a series of pictures from their get together on Instagram, showing the little girl in the wig.

The star also posted a video in which she gives Miyah some advice.

"I'm so happy that you got your pink wig," she said. "I think you're beautiful without the pink wig, OK? But whenever you want to play dress-up and feel like a little Barbie doll that's fine. But remember you promised me that you were going to stay in school."
