Popular American rapper, Aubrey Drake Graham, AKA Drake has claimed he may be Nigerian following the outcome of a recent ancestry test by his family.
Drake, an American music star, is estimated to have a net worth of $250 million and reportedly receives $70 million yearly, as returns.
Sharing his Dad’s ancestry results on social media, Drake revealed he is 30% Nigerian.
He made the disclosure on Sunday in a post on his Instagram page.
He wrote, “This is my dad’s results, does this mean I’m a Naija man finally?.”
Drake is not the first foreign superstar to claim Nigerian roots. Beyoncé, SZA, Diddy and a host of others have claimed their ancestors were from Nigeria in the past.
Last year, Rihanna claimed her ancestors were Igbo. She later explained that she didn’t mention Nigeria because the country was nonexistent at the time her ancestors left the shores of Igboland.
However, his recent revelation has stirred reactions from his Nigerian fans.
