Probably the World’s most commercially successful rapper to ever touch a mic, Canadian rapper Drake just confirmed he might be Nigerian.

Nigerians have taken to social media to share their reactions on the matter. A lot of which have been more of a joyful feeling for everyone.

However, what will Drake being Nigerian mean for the Hip-hop community? We have seen French Montana, embrace Morocco fully since discovering he was Moroccan, do you think Drake will do the same?

French Montana, since he discovered he was Moroccan has travelled to the country from time to time and shared in the country’s culture while contributing his quota to the Moroccan music industry.

The question I am looking to ask is, “What will this revelation contribute to the Nigerian Hip-hop community?”
