What would you do in order to get your favorite celebrity to notice you? Well, this 16-year-old Drake fan decided to fake an entire wedding to get the rapper’s attention.
Last week, an Instagram user named drake_wedding uploaded a screenshot of his direct message to the 6 God, requesting the rapper to “perform a couple of songs” at his wedding. And to his surprise, Drake agreed—but only if the post hit one million likes on Instagram. He also added that the fan needed at least 100,000 followers in order to make the request happen.
“Guys! It would mean the world to me if you guys could help me achieve this goal! I made this account so I can surprise my fiancée! Story share this so more people can see! Thank you @champagnepapi for the opportunity!” the fan wrote in the post’s caption. It has since earned more than a million likes, and the account has 250,000 followers.
But it all turned out to be a harmless prank, Drake revealed on his Instagram stories earlier today. In a new screenshot of their conversation, the fan (whose real name is Jacob Hawk) apologized to the rapper for trolling him. “Sorry it blew up like this, I’m a 16-year-old from San Antonio and never meant for it to be like this. Huge fan of you,” the message read. Drake captioned the photo with the moral of the story: “Instagram is a disturbing place.”
Following Drizzy’s latest response, the fan joked on his Instagram saying, “Don’t say L. This is the biggest W in my life.”
Drake recently dropped off Care Package, a compilation album that puts together some of the rapper’s classic loose cuts. He also jumped on Swae Lee’s newest single “Won’t be Late,” which was co-produced by Mike Will Made-it and Tekno.
