Drake must have been wowed by young Hyzah’s skill as he hailed his Nigerian counterpart and also gave him a follow on Instagram.
The Canadian rapper is known to support budding artistes, signing PartyNextDoor to his OVO label way back in 2013.
Hyzah, who only had two followers before Drake followed him, rose to 77,000 shortly after.
Drake himself has over 74 million followers on the Facebook-owned image and video sharing app.
The elated Hyzah expressed gratitude to Drake, whose Instagram name is champagnepapi, for the sudden surge in his followership base.
He wrote, “Just yesterday, I had only 2 followers only to wake up this morning to see Drake @champagnepapi following me… Thanks for the love & repost!! You guys are amazing!!”
In addition to the follow, Drake also sent him a Direct Message, telling the young artiste: “U are amazing.”
