After testing positive for Covid-19, Canadian rapper Drake postponed his Young Money Reunion concert.
The performance, which included Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, was slated for August 1. The October World Weekend Festival, a five day music festival taking place in Drake’s native Toronto, Canada, including today’s reunion show.
Monday morning, Drake apologized and announced the cancellation on his Instagram story. He informed the crowd that a new date would be announced “SOONEST date possible.” In his announcement, Drake also said, “… I hope everyone stays safe and healthy and I love you all I am so sorry for letting you down on our weekend together and the moment I test negative I will give you everything I got onstage (except the Covid).”
Lil Baby and singer Chris Brown performed during the October World Weekend on the first and second days of the festival, which featured a large number of Canadian musicians.
This postponement is one of many by Canadian performers that have occurred in Canada. In June, Justin Bieber had to cancel a number of concerts in Toronto due to sickness. Due to the Rogers network outage, singer The Weekend was also forced to postpone performances. Get well soon, Drizzy.
