Drake is making room for Canadian hip-hop royalty at this year’s OVO Fest by giving them their own night to shine tonight in Toronto. One of those artists is singer Keshia Chante. Watch the video below and subscribe to WorldWide Entertainment TV Youtube Channel.
In the Thursday Throwback video above, we see Keshia Chante on late night Canadian urban magazine show from the 90s. Big Apple’s World TV interviewed a young Keshia Chante at the age of 17. What is interesting about the interview is she shouts out Drake as an artist to look out for.
Now in 2022, the Toronto rapper gives back to the artists who paved the way for Toronto with the All Canadian North Stars concert, stating the trailblazers “paved the way” for those who came after, including Keisha Chante.
Apparently the songstress dated Drake back when they were just teenagers. Way before he was the Champagne Papi of today. It was during their teenage years when they were a couple at the young age of 14. As the relationship faded, and the years went by, both their careers continued to grow, and they managed to remain friends. Keshia shared with Ebro in The Morning that she will always view Drake as “such a good person” and to know “Aubrey is to love him.” Everyone remembers Drake’s hit song, “In My Feelings,”
but who is Keke? Some believe Canadian singer, songwriter, and TV personality Keshia “KeKe” Chanté is the woman Drake is crooning over on the song.
She was 6 years old when she first performed in front of an audience, and signed her first recording contract with SonyMusic Canada at age 14. Her debut album was released on June 22 2004, and earned her a Juno Award nomination for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. The album was eventually certified gold.
