Anyone could have thought that Canadian rapper, Drake was going to propose to Rihanna on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 28. Drake’s fans and Rihanna’s admirers were left almost breathless with expectation while the rapper revealed he has been in love with the singer for seven years.
Incidentally, Drake was on stage to present the Video Vanguard Award to Rihanna. And what a moving loving speech he made in respect of his idol:
“She is someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I’ve looked up to her.
“What’s most impressive isn’t the endless list of stats, awards or accomplishments.
“She succeds by doing something which no one in this music industry does and that’s be herself.”
That Drake whom Rihanna honoured with a kiss afterwards on stage did not go ahead on one knee to propose to her was what surprised everyone who watched.
