A recent revelation about the lineage of Canadian musician Aubrey Drake Graham, also known as Drake, has stirred discussion online. The rapper stated in an Instagram post that his father’s latest DNA genealogy testing proved he was 30% Nigerian, which caught the attention of many of his Nigerian followers.
Drake remarked that Dennis Graham, his father, had provided him a screenshot of his DNA test, which revealed that they were more Nigerian than any other race or tribe in the world. The ecstatic rapper responded to the news by posting it to his Instagram account and joking that he could now officially identify as a “Naija man.”
Following this “revelation,” netizens flocked to the comments section to express their “acceptance” of the rapper into the “Nigerian Fold,” making humorous references to his name to make it sound “more Nigerian.”
Recently, the Canadian rapper Drake also earned $2.7 million (about N1.2 billion) due to the battle between Nigerian UFC fighter Israel Adesanya and Brazilian Alex Pereira. Drake was among Adesanya’s fans and supporters that rejoiced when he defeated Pereira by knockout and reclaimed the UFC middleweight championship. According to sources, the rapper reportedly bet $400k (over N186 million) on Adesanya to win via knockout and an additional $N500 (over N232 million) on him to win the fight.
