Santan Dave is currently traveling around North America, putting on one sold-out show after another. Recently, he stopped by History, a new Live Nation venue in Toronto that is co-owned by Drake. Given Dave’s longstanding friendship with the Toronto native, it came as no surprise that Drake would show up on stage.
“Toronto, please, like I said, this guy right here is one generational talent. Whether he is rapping, pouring out his heart, whether he’s turning all the way up, whether he’s playing the piano, whether he’s acting in our show, Top Boy, I promise you this guy right here is one of one – make some noise for Dave,” Drake told the crowd, according to Hypebeast.
Drake didn’t stop there. He also went to share some news about his upcoming shows as well.
“I love you with all my heart. They let the city back open so I will see you at OVO Fest soon,” he added.
OVO Fest has not returned since the COVID-19 pandemic struck North America in early 2020. While he didn’t provide any specific details regarding the event, it is a promising turn of events. Drake has not toured since delivering his latest studio album, Certified Lover Boy, in 2021. Meanwhile, Dave is set to return to Toronto in September as part of Rolling Loud’s first festival in the Canadian megacity.
