The rapper jokingly walked the walk on Tuesday (May 3), when an Instagram troll poked fun at Drake’s son, Adonis, writing, “Ya son prolly play with ghost writers.” The snide remark was in reference to past controversies, in which Drake was accused of not writing his own verses and using ghostwriters.
Instead of getting heated, Drake decided to have some fun. He found the troll’s wife and followed her on Instagram. “I just followed your girl cause she’s prob miserable and needs some excitement in her life,” he replied to the original comment.
The wife, named Toni, went on to share her perspective on her Instagram Stories. “Oh hey @champagnepapi,” she captioned a screenshot of her followers, with Drake bring one of them. She followed up by writing, “My husband @ceddybo_ybagnm decides to be a troll and now @champagnepapi thinking I need excitement in my life [eyes emoji] [laughing emoji].”
Oh, but that’s not all. Drake also DMed Toni after seeing her Stories. “I’m here for u ma,” he wrote to her.
