Drake was welcomed onto the stage as a surprise guest during Dave’s show in Toronto on Friday (May 13). During his appearance at REBEL, Drizzy gave high praise to the UK rapper before announcing the return of OVO Fest in 2022.
“Toronto, please, like I said, this guy right here is a once in a generation talent,” he said on stage. “Whether he’s rapping, pouring out his heart, whether he’s turning all the way up, whether he’s playing the piano, whether he’s acting in our show, Top Boy, I promise you this guy right here is a one of one. Make some muthafucking noise for Dave.”
He added, “I love you with all my heart. They let the city back open so I will see you at OVO Fest soon.”
The last OVO Fest took place in 2019 after being put on hold for the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous lineup boasted B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Lloyd, the Ying Yang Twins, Chingy and Bobby V, with special guests Cardi B, Offset, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Tyga and more.
