At this year’s October World Weekend, rapper Drake, 35, introduced singer-songwriter Keshia Chanté, 34, who just so happens to be his former girlfriend.
On July 28, Drake, full name Aubrey Drake Graham, addressed the crowd at Toronto venue History as part of his All Canadian All Stars event. Ahead of the “Unpredictable” singer’s set, Drake shared:
“This next person coming to the stage, I used to get in my mom’s car I used to drive all the way to the west for this donna right here, you feel me? So I have to personally introduce her.”
“This is my first girlfriend I’ve ever had in my life coming to the stage. A real legend, somebody I love with all my heart.”

Keshia Chanté is long-speculated to be the “KiKi” that Drake sings about on his 2016 hit, “In My Feelings.” Following her performance, Keshia took to Instagram to express her gratitude in return to the Canadian rapper. In the lengthy caption, the television host wrote:
“Legendary Nights in Toronto. I’ve never seen the city come together like that! It was everything. A dream only @champagnepapi could make true. The most heartfelt & meaningful introduction I’ve ever had. Aubs I love u for life. And @djcharlieb I am so MFN proud of you. I’ve been watching you put in that work since 2004 and the All Canadian North Stars show was the perfect full circle moment.
Performing songs I dropped in my teen years and hearing you sing all the words, made my soul so happy. Such a beautiful memory I will cherish forever. Toronto you have been riding for me since the very beginning and I am so grateful for the love. Also special shout out to everyone at the very beginning of my career who literally broke these records and are the reason my mama has certified plaques in her crib lol DJ Scott Boogie, DJ Starting from Scratch, DJ X, Mark Strong & Jemini, Flow & Kiss FM, DJ Duece, Hadi & so many other important people. I love you.
From immature kids to entrepreneur kids!!”
As previously reported, the father-of-one announced plans for his three-day October World Weekend, including 3 music events featuring other well-known artists which kicked off on July 28.
In addition to his All Canadian All Stars event, OVO fans were treated to a concert from Chris Brown and Lil Baby at the Budweiser Stage on July 29 as part of their “One Of Them Ones Tour.” The Young Money Reunion show featuring headliners Drake, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj was supposed to mark the third event, but it had to be postponed because Drake ended up testing positive for COVID.
