Nicki Mina missed her set at London's jam-packed Wireless Festival yesterday (July 5) following apparent "travel issues." She arrived two hours after her scheduled set time (7 PM BST), and joined David Guetta onstage around 9:30 PM to perform a half-hour long medley of her hits.

"Our plane couldn't get out because of the weather but I want to tell you how much I f---ing love y'all. I want to tell you how much I appreciate you guys for showing Young Money love from day one," Minaj (who had been performing in Denmark the previous evening) told the crowd.
