When asked about extending his audience to other markets now that he has conquered North America and if that was the motivation behind the Ojuelegba Remix, Drake was honest and said that wasn’t the case.

He goes,

“I just did it because I was in the moment,” he says. “I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria.’” (He hastens to add, with classic Drake politeness, “Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.”)

  1. “I just did it because I was in the moment,” he says. “I wasn’t thinking like, ‘Oh man, I gotta get my brand up in Nigeria.’” (He hastens to add, with classic Drake politeness, “Not to say that’s not important. I’m super-honored to be on that song.”) ??????? This statement from Drake smacks of unadulterated arrogance.

    Say what? That’s that ish from Drake. Doesn’t he know that humility fuels continuous success? On the other hand the Bible teaches us that “Pride comes before a fall”. Why any artist, successful or not , anywhere in the world, would not want to “get their brand up in Nigeria” is baffling to me and leaves me gobsmacked! Nigeria is the RICHEST nation in Africa, boasting the largest Black population in the world, with approximately 200 MILLION people? Even multi-national corporations that can buy and sell Drake, are scrambling to “get their brand up in Nigeria”. Drake, I know you’re from Canada and all, but since you are claiming hip-hop, you really ought to show respect for Africa.
