Grammy-winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion is being praised by fans worldwide for her selfless act after she made a generous donation to help a late fan's family. The 'Thot Sh*t' hitmaker donated $8,155 to support the funeral expenses of Shaniah Leigh Scales, who tragically died recently. Megan's contribution helped the Scales family reach their $16,000 target on GoFundMe for Shaniah's burial on June 19, 2021. 

Shaniah's close friend Selena Chichis posted a heartbreaking note about them, where she mentioned Shaniah's love for Megan. The singer herself got in touch with Chichis, enquiring how much they needed for her last rites, before making the donation. "You guys I can't believe this! We hit the goal @theestallion thank you so much for helping their family! Thank you so much everyone! Every single one of you! From the bottom of our hearts! I am crying so full of emotions," Chichis emotionally expressed later.

Who was Shaniah Leigh Scales?

Shaniah Leigh Scales was a young, non-binary individual and a Megan Thee Stallion superfan, who passed away untimely in their home on June 10, 2021. A GoFundMe organized for her posthumously by Phoenix Herrera reveals that Shaniah is survived by their mother Rita and brother BJ. 

Her friend Chichis wrote on Instagram, "Can’t believe I’m posting this, I couldn’t ever imagine having to do this, not about you. I’ve been wanting to send you so many funny videos and the lyrics to the new Meg but I can’t. It doesn’t feel real to me. I still have hope this is somehow a fucked up dream or joke. I texted you and I hope somewhere in the universe you’re able to get this message, all of our messages. We are heart broken, this’s devastating. We were about to be with you. You are one of a kind, I’ll never have a friend like you again. I’m 100% sure of this. You were a light in my life, there was only certain things I could talk to just YOU about, only you. I’m the luckiest person to have experienced your love and friendship for any fraction of time. I’m gonna miss something crazy happening and you looking at me immediately because you always loved my dramatic reactions. I fucking miss you Shaniah. Rest In Peace my sweet baby ❤️I love you so very much"


Megan's fans lauded the singer's noble gesture and flooded her with thoughtful messages. Shaniah's mother Rita Duncan tweeted, "This is Shaniah Scales mom you blessed my daughter, she passed away on June the 10th she was 24 , you took time out of you schedule and did this for her… ty so much… you are her favorite female artist… would love to talk to you about my daughter"

"You are such a kind soul, Shaniah’s family and friends are forever grateful for you!!! Now we can focus on making sure everything goes smoothly, this is one less thing for the family to stress about. Their mom started crying and asking for your number REAL HOT GIRL SHIT!!!" a fan tweeted.
