Some additional facts :

1) Trinidad and Tobago is the smallest country by area to ever play a FIFA world cup.

2) Haddaway, known for What is Love, is one of the most famous trinidadians.

3) Trinidad and Tobago have won 15 of their 19 olympic medals, including their 3 gold medals, in athletics.

To that extent... Jamaica is even more of a "one-trick pony":

They have won 78 medals, of which only one wasn't won in athletics (David Weller's bronze medal in cycling, at Moscow '80). Furthermore, all but 3 of those 77 medals were won in sprint events.

Thus, sprint event-related medals make a whopping 94.87% of Jamaican medals!! In comparison, T&T's athletics medals make a 78.95% share.

Since the Nicki Minaj hint has a typo, I think it should be replaced altogether with Haddaway. That song's totally gonna be in my head all day now...

Nicki Minaj is more famous than Haddaway.

Nicki Minaj sucks though (not debatable).

I feel like Nicki Minaj is arguably more famous than Haddaway, especially because people actually know her name. "What is Love" is quite widely known, but the artist and the rest of their music, not so much. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has over 100 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.

Being the creator of a song that's more of a meme than an actual song doesn't really give you any kind of recognition. No one knows who sings Man's Not Hot, For the Damaged Coda, or Shooting Stars but I'd bet most people know what the songs sound like

It may be a meme now, but What is Love was a big thing in the nineties.

Saturday Night Live helped make it popular too.

It is inextricably tied to that skit in my mind.

Ethiopia has 55 olympic medals, every single one in long-distance running. Quite remarkable for a country of 120 milion.

could you accept just "steel" for the drum?
Level 81
Jul 28, 2020
Agreed. You accept steel drum, but not steel, when the question asks 'what kind of drum.....?' It makes no sense. It is called a steel drum in the UK.
Level 70
Aug 17, 2020
Agreed! In Canada it's just steel drum as well.
Level 85
Nov 30, 2020
Not accepting "drum" (but accepting "steel drum") for the question, "What type of drum..." doesn't really make sense.
Level 67
Jul 31, 2020
If you're not into cricket....than that question totally makes no sense. xD (not complaining, just stating). :P

If you're not into rapping, the rapping question is equally impenetrable. Live with it.
Level 59
Nov 30, 2020
If you're not into rapping but you've listened to the radio within the last 5 years, you should know who Nicki Minaj is.
Level 56
Nov 30, 2020
Not really. Most people would change the radio channel as soon as her song comes on.
