- Former US president Barack Obama has given Drake his stamp of approval to portray him in a movie about his life
- While there currently aren't any plans for a movie as yet, Obama has endorsed the US celeb
- Drake says that he is a huge fan of Obama's, never missing a single address just in case he gets a call
Barak Obama recently gave Drake his stamp of approval to portray him in a movie about his life, should one ever get made.
While there currently isn't a biopic on the life of the former US president in the pipeline, Drake hasn't kept his desires a secret.
When asked if he would be happy with Drake portraying him, Obama commented in an interview that:
“I will say this. Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he’s ready, you know…”
Chatting to Complex’s “360 With Speedy Morman”, Obama revealed that Drake had his family's 'stamp of approval', hinting that his daughters wouldn't mind.
Speaking to Paper magazine, Drake had explained that he religiously watched Obama's addresses in preparation for portraying him in a movie.
Drake had revealed that he always pays attention to the inflections in Obama's voice and never changes the channel when the former president does come on.
Drake had continued to say that he is actually pretty decent at impressions, despite no one signalling that they are interested in him for the role just yet:
" If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. Slowly but surely, I’m not in the study mode because nobody’s called me about anything, but I just pay attention so when the day comes I’m not scrambling to learn how to speak like him.”
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Chris Brown has hinted that he is working on a collaboration album with Drake.
The singer revealed this during an interview on The Fat Joe Show on Instagram Live.
The Deuces hitmaker shared that they've already done a few songs together with the Toosie Slide hitmaker.
"We got some songs. We definitely got some songs. We got some heat," Chris told Fat Joe.
