While many artists are getting innovative with their music careers during the coronavirus pandemic, Nicky Jam is buying buildings.

On an Instagram post shared Wednesday (Sept. 2), the Puerto Rican star announced to his nearly 40 million followers that he bought an entire school edifice. “From being expelled from school to buying a school,” he expressed. “If I can, you can.”

On the photo, Nicky is seen posing with real estate investor, developer, and consultant Cesar Piña in front of the 80-unit building located in Paterson, New Jersey.

“He sees all the potential and opportunity I see in my city,” Piña wrote on his Instagram. “Big things coming casa/musica connection,” he added, hinting at a music and home project.

Billboard reached out to Nicky and Piña for further comments.
