Nicki Minaj is not someone that the limelight can easily be stolen from - but a young boy did just that at the Odyssey Arena Belfast.

The young fan was invited up on stage as part of the PinkPrint tour and was overwhelmed at meeting his idol on Wednesday night.

Speaking through tears, the boy known only as Danny, said he had been "dreaming of this moment for so long".

The rapper then draws him in for a hug which appears to stop the little boy's sobs and he was able to answer her when she asked his name.

But not only did the lucky fan get to meet Nicki Minaj, he also got the chance to perform alongside the world-famous singer and rapper with other fans.

However the youngster seemed unfazed by the packed out arena as he showed off his impressive dance moves to thunderous applause from the Belfast crowd.

It has been reported that the 12-year-old who stole the show was Danny McGahey from Rathmullan in Co Donegal.

The Superbass singer also took time to meet fans and pose for photos with them outside.

Minaj tweeted a video of herself and the young boy on stage with the caption: "Get your life from the little boy in this video please.

"Belfast I love you so much. Wow. Life tonight."
