Popular US rapper, Drake seems to want to make it up to Nigerian songster, Wizkid aka Star Boy after he, Drake, didn’t show up for ‘Come Closer’ video. Drake, while performing at the pre-show OVOFEST concert in Canada at the weekend, performed Wizkid’s Track, ‘Come Closer’. Drake ‘makes it up’ to Wizkid, performs Starboy’s ‘Come closer’.
During his performance, he sang ‘his own part of the song’, while the excited crowd sang joyfully with him but he avoided the chorus, perhaps it wasn’t intentional?

However, he moved on to ‘One Dance’ and while he was getting close to the chorus (Wizkid’s part), he told the DJ to hang on and then he moved to his song, “Blem”.
Maybe we are getting it all wrong? Maybe he meant no harm? Ahh this one weak me ooo. Are you asking why I am thinking this way? Don’t you know the kasala behind Wizkid’s ‘Come Closer’ with Drake?
See video below…
Recall that Wizkid had released the visual for his collaboration with the US rapper on the ‘Come Closer’ music video but the US rapper was absent during the shooting of Wizkid’s ‘Come Closer’ video which he was supposed to feature in. Drake’s absence was clearly obvious as his verse had no one to mime it except Wizkid who handled it admirably.
But following the hullabaloo caused by his absence, Wizkid had explained why Drake didn’t show up for Come Closer video. Wizkid and some some section of fans, alleged it was payback time because in 2016, Wizkid was absent during Drake’s video shoot for ‘One Dance’ and he failed to make the final cut.
Anyway, here’s what Wizkid said…
Meanwhile, the much talked about ‘Come Closer’ video was directed by Dapo ‘DAPS’ Fabenle.
Over time, it has been proven that Drake has a history of not showing up in videos. This is obviously not the first time, only that Wizkid’s the latest. He did it to Future with “Tony Montana,” Migos with “Versace,” and Fetty Wap with the “My Way” remix. He hopped on all those songs and refused to show up to shoot the respective videos.
