So many things are wrong with life, so in a bid to survive regardless and keep our heads in a good-enough state, we like to imagine. This article, like the many others that we have up on our platforms, is one of the products of our wild imaginations.
Drake is Canada’s king of hip hop. And with the massive influx of Afrobeats culture in CA, we sat to imagine what he would look and behave like if he was Nigerian. You want to know too, right? Here’s is our picture:
Easily a Yoruba Demon
We need to get the obvious ones out of the way. This man would definitely be a Yoruba demon. He has the beard and the confidence for it. I also suspect he has the audacity to match because anybody that has the ability to pull the likes of Rihanna is unbelievable. Any self-respecting Yoruba demon needs a certain level of audacity. We believe this man has what it takes in this regard and we believe in his government.
An Igbo man still
Don’t they say Igbo men are the purest lover boys? Drake has the soul of an Igbo man—always willing to put himself out there, love a nice lady named Ifeoma and give her the world. He’s a romantic and we love him for it. Also, nothing will fit Drake more than Igbo-man fashion. We’re talking fishnet shirts, gold shoes, silver chains and everything in between. He would definitely pull it off. Also we’re not sure why, but we strongly feel his name would be Ignatious. There’s no explanation for this one, it’s purely just intuition.
You know that guy whose friends call girls he doesn’t like “our wife”? From Drake’s music, it really seems like he would be that man if he were one of us. The way he is piercing ear up and down and putting braids in his hair. As a Nigerian man, this guy would be dangerous. We praise the Lord for not letting him see the streets of Lagos. Our babes have suffered enough.
Chart topper still
Nigerian blood imbues one with a strong work ethic. It may be the blood, or it may be that suffering is everywhere in the country so you have to grind. But either way, we sabi hustle. Drake is already doing well as is, but if his name were Derenle, his work ethic and talent would definitely still place him at the top of the food chain in his field. Can’t lie, he’d probably be like Asake — constantly keeping his foot on our necks and hitting us with new bangers every week.
Toxic sad boy
He would be that musician that gives a mix of Joeboy and Asake vibes. Mr Money by day and lover boy by night. He’d give us toxic sad boy vibes and the songs would be immaculate. Also, his collaborations would probably still slap and he would have us in a very unhealthy chokehold.
Who would you love us to analyze later? Let us know!
