- Canadian rapper, Drake, responded to his father's claims that he had lied about their relationship
- Drake has been rapping about how his father was always absent in his life and thanked his mother for raising him
- Drake's father, Dennis Graham, recently told the media that Drake was only saying those things to sell records
Canadian rapper, Drake took to social media recently to share how upset he was about his father speaking about their “relationship”.
Drake is one of the world’s most respected rappers in the game, especially for his introspective song writing about his life.
Since the rapper dropped his first project, he has been speaking about his absentee father and his life growing up and swears it’s the gospel truth.
The rapper often thanks his mother for raising him alone, after his parents separated a while back. Drake once even wished his mother a “Happy Father’s Day” in a post he shared on Instagram in 2012.
But recently his father called Drake a liar, revealing that he was part of Drake’s life and was only saying those things to sell records.
When Drake saw this, he responded on his Instagram story saying that he was hurt by the claims of Dennis Graham.
“My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him,” said the Canadian rapper.
He then added: “It’s sad when family gets like this but what can we do, that’s the people we are stuck with”.
Even Mzansi has a similar story. Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi rapper, Gigi Lamayne, shared the truth about how her father had abused her while growing up, on Pearl Thusi’s Behind The Story show last week.
According to SA Hip Hop magazine, Gigi revealed details of her sorrowful life, which left viewers emotional and in tears.
The rapper explained that she had suffered depression caused by both cyber bullying and as well as memories of her horrendous childhood experiences.
