Four days after Drake’s dad Dennis Graham told Nick Cannon in an interview that the rapper only wrote lyrics about him (Graham) being an absentee father to sell records, Drizzy has responded.
The Toronto rapper took to his Instagram accountstories moments ago to address his father’s claims saying, “woke up today so hurt man. My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him. It’s sad when family gets like this but what can we really do that’s the people we are stuck with…every bar I ever spit was the truth and the truth is hard for some people to accept”.
Drake’s IG story comes in response to his dad’s October 4th interview on Nick Cannon’s Power 106 radio show where the issue of Drizzy’s purportedly once-strained relationship with his dad was raised.
Drake’s father was however quick to dismiss that idea saying, “I had a conversation with Drake about that. I have always been with Drake. I talked to him if not every day, every other day and we really got into a deep conversation about that, ‘I said Drake, why are you saying all this different stuff about me man like this is not cool’. He goes ‘Dad it sells records,’ and I said ‘Okay well cool.'”
Drake has rapped about his relationship with his father at various points in the past, including on his emotional Take Care song “Look What You’ve Done.”
One of the highlight of yesterday was Swae Lee’s ‘Won’t be late’ hit which Drake got featured in being released.
Asides the surprise of Nigerian superstar singer Tekno producing the song, Drake stunningly ‘went foreign’ with ‘Ikebe and Bakassi’. Part of the Canadian rapper’s verse on the hit song was ‘Ikebe, pressing on me heavy, Pressing up against me real close. Bakasi, moving on me’.
Drake went on to reveal how he got to know about the Nigerian slangs for a*s after the song became some fans’ favourite, in an exchange with a Nigerian Instagram user. The rapper said he made some research on his own even though Tekno brought life to it by changing the riddim.
Here is a screenshot of the exchange with Nigerian fan.
British-Nigerian heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has emerged as the latest sports star to be a victim of the ‘Drake curse’ after he was beaten last night by
Mexican boxer, Andy Ruiz Jnr.
Back in March, the 28-year-old boxer posted a picture with Drake and vowed to break the Drake Curse, a phenomenon whereby
any team or athlete the Canadian rapper is pictured with ends up losing a big event.
‘Bout to break the curse #June1st,’ he
captioned the photo with Drake.
Before his fight with Ruiz Jnr, Joshua
admitted that the Drake curse is real after his initial opponent Jarrell Miller failed a drug test.
‘You know about the Drake curse? It is real though. Do you know what is weird actually?
I took a picture with Drake before Miller got banned.’
‘Miller had his drug test and the whole fight went to pot. The fight got cancelled,’ he said during his appearance on The Michael
Kay Show in May.
Joshua has now joined the list of sports stars including Arsenal forward Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang , Manchester United
midfielder Paul Pogba and Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa and Conor McGregor among others who have been affected by the Drake curse.
After Kurzawa was pictured with Drake, his team Paris Saint-Germain suffered 5 – 1 thrashing at the hands of Lille , the club’s heaviest league defeat in 19 years.
Award-winning Canadian rapper, Drake was pictured with British Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua in the boxing ring ahead of
his 23rd professional fight. Captioning the photo he posted to his
Instagram, Drake wrote: ‘Walk in the rave, smile on my face. Drink in my cup, hand in my jeans. Man talk tough, man look up, down, left, right. Straight to a bang in the teeth’. According to The Daily Mail, Drake’s been
training with Jamie Reynolds who is also Joshua’s strength and conditioning coach.
