Drake remarked to the fans during the All Canadian All-Stars event on Thursday, July 28:
“This next lady on stage, I used to jump in my mother’s vehicle and go all the way to the west for this donna right here, you feel me?” As a result, I must personally present her. This is the first time I’ve ever had a girlfriend on stage. “A true legend, someone I adore with all my heart.”
Keshia soon emerged on stage, and the audience greeted her warmly. The musician then performed a handful of her songs and thanked Drake on Instagram, adding that she had never seen the city come together like that before. Chante also said that singing the songs she published as a teen and hearing people sing the lyrics made her happy. Chante commented that she would treasure this memory for the rest of her life,
“Toronto, you have been riding for me from the beginning, and I am eternally thankful for your support.” Also, a special thanks to everyone that broke these records at the start of my career and are the reason my mother has certified plaques in her bed haha. DJ Scott Boogie, DJ Starting from Scratch, DJ X, Mark Strong & Jemini, Flow & Kiss FM, DJ Deuce, Hadi, and many more. I adore you. From immature to entrepreneur children!!”
