Drake announced on Thursday that he had to pull out of The Wireless Festival last minute due to an illness. The decision was then made that Kanye West would replace him on Day 2 (Saturday night) in London. Kanye did not disappoint his fans, and gave a small tribute to Drake during his set.
The Drake tribute was a brief intermission in between Kanye’s regular set and covered three Drake songs for the fans. He played “Trophies”, “We Made It”, and “All Me” all to which the crowd sang along
Drake reached out and thanked Kanye on Instagram writing:
“Man I appreciate Kanye playing Trophies at Wireless so much. I want to be at all the shows more than anything in the world right now. I just keep watching the video over and over. Slow motion for me right now but I promise all the fans an incredible experience as soon as I am back. I am so sorry once again I love you all dearly. Thank you Ye for giving me that joy tonight.”Drake and Ye have remained close since Kanye’s surprise performance at OVO Fest last year. Drake was a guest on Kanye’s ‘Yeezus’ tour in Toronto, while Kanye made another appearance on Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ in Berlin.
