Twitter is abuzz after it was announced that American rapper, Aubrey Drake Graham, popularly referred to as Drake will perform in Cape Town on 22 March 2020 as well as Johannesburg and Durban as part of his African tour.
South Africans are wondering whether to believe the story or dismiss it as fake news.
If Drake was really coming to South Africa, you’d know.
