Famous Canadian rapper, Aubrey Drake Graham popularly known as Drake, has in a screenshot on his Insta-story revealed that his DNA ancestry is 30% Nigerian.
The rapper, in excitement, wrote in the caption of his post saying: “Does this mean I’m finally a Naija man.“
Drake noted that his dad, Dennis Graham, had sent him a screenshot of his DNA test that showed they were more Nigerian than any other race or tribe in the world after the test was conducted.
Drake has joined a number of foreign superstars 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.
