OVO Fest: Recap 2017

Toronto native Drake had his highly anticipated annual OVO fest earlier this week. Held on Monday 7th August he had some of the biggest artist on stage. The ‘Gyalchester’ artist gave an electric performance, bringing his past Canadian foe Tory Lanez to perform his hit duplicated song ‘Controlla’. “Me and this guy right here. We had problems with each other, we had never even met each other. I met the man, and he’s a great guy’.


Drake showed love to Cardi B and congratulated her on her recent success with her hit single ‘Bodak Yellow.
