Drake says that his father took an ancestry test, revealing that he’s Nigerian. The Toronto rapper shared the results of the test on Instagram, Sunday night. “This is my dad’s results, does this mean I’m a Naija man finally?” Drake asked his followers. The results show Dennis Graham with 30% for Nigeria, 28% for Cameroon, Congo, & Western Bantu Peoples, 11% for Ivory Coast & Ghana, another 8% for England & Northwestern Europe, and other small percentages for Scotland, Mali, Benin & Togo, and Germanic Europe.
When NoJumper shared the results on their Instagram page, fans had plenty of jokes in response. “Drake seem like the type to really start acting Nigerian now,” one user commented. “Ahh there goes another culture,” another joked. Some fans doubted the validity of the results. One remarked, “That’s site is a scam! It says I’m 33% Nigerian and the rest is pretty much the same as drakes findings.”

As for music, Drake is set to embark on his It’s All A Blur Tour with 21 Savage later this year. The two will be traveling to New Orleans, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Toronto, Brooklyn, Inglewood, Memphis, Milwaukee, and many more cities across 54 dates. The concerts will span from June through October 2023. The tour comes after the release of Drake and 21 Savage’s collaborative album, Her Loss, which arrived in November and includes a feature from Travis Scott. The project moved 400,000 album-equivalent units in its first week and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
Drake also made headlines, last week, by putting his Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $88 million. He previously purchased the property for $75 million from British musician Robbie Williams. The listing describes the house as being “perfectly suited for grand-scale entertaining and showcasing world-class art collections.” Check out the results of Drake’s father’s ancestry test on Instagram below.
