Drake: Badmon Skep, what time you coming to the video shoot?

Skepta: No this isn’t the song with me on it…that was Ojuelegba. It’s a different song.

Drake was in Europe on tour during the video shoot so it was physically impossible for him to actually make it.

Yes we all want the best for Wizkid and Drake getting on a song with him is a huge deal, however this is his video, not Drake’s. Don’t watch the video looking only for Drake and miss on a great moment for our Starboy. We already did that with “One Dance”, so lets enjoy this one.
