Minnie and Nandi met each other way before they became famous, and have maintained their friendship throughout the years.

Minnie threw a baby shower for Nandi last year, and the duo have always supported each other. Speaking of her husband, Quinton Jones, Minnie said they were friends for years and very close until one day their friendship blossomed into a relationship.

Minnie said her husband was like her best friend, and that’s why their relationship worked.
