Top Canadian rapper Drake needs no introduction. He featured Wizkid on his song, One Dance which has earned Wizkid his first Grammy nomination.
Wizkid then featured Drake on a new track, Closer which is a decent song. However, rumour has it that Drake and Wizkid have never seen face to face.
One person who can happily boast of seeing and gisting with Drake in person is our beloved Burna Boy who met up with him recently in London. Here are four reasons why Drake met Burna before Wizzy if the rumour is true:
1. Burna Boy is more gangster
Burna Boy has a minor criminal record which he addresses in his recent single, Pree Me. His 'street' look and background could have attracted him to Drake.
Drake famously sang that he started from the bottom and perhaps he can see Burna has faced the same struggle.
2. Burna Boy has dreads like the Weeknd
If looks have anything to do with it, Burna Boy has dreads similar to popular singer the Weeknd who is one of Drake's good friends.
If Drake was looking to build up his crew with lookalikes, Burna Boy would fit right in...even though the Weeknd did cut off his dreads eventually.
3. Burna Boy is more of a rapper
Rappers love to meet other rappers. Wizkid is primarily a singer and Burna is more in Drake's comfort zone.
The two can share creative ideas on their flow, how to spit bars and all that jazz. Plus both of them on a rap song would sell and over sell even.

4. Mere coincidence
Burna and Drake met in London and could have met at a venue they were supposed to perform in. So, it might just be mere coincidence that the two of the had to perform there.
However, for Drake to agree to meet Burna, that says he is doing something right. Burna has a unique sound and good lyrics so it would be great to see him go to greater heights.
