Fine boy Drake has always had a eye for beauty, but we had no idea he could surprise us even more.
According to reports, his latest is a Toronto model named Nekisha.
As with all women linked with Drake, Nekisha is a beauty, but her body is what’s got all the attention. She’s really curvy in all the right places and they say it’s all natural.
Over the weekend, Drake mentioned that he was going to “retire” his stripper ex-girlfriend Maliah Michel. Drake meant this as a compliment in the sense that she wouldn’t have to be a stripper anymore, but Maliah took this the wrong way and called him out in a series of tweets.
It all started with Drake hosting a retirement party for Lira Galore, Miracle Watts and Maliah Michel at his pop-up nightclub The Ballet. The festivities required hanging up the jerseys of the strippers to commemorate their retirement. In addition, each woman received special gifts from Louis Vuitton courtesy of Drake’s new partnership with them.
Miracle Watts was really appreciative of the gesture and took to Instagram to thank the rapper for retiring her from her life as a stripper.
She wrote: “Look, I don’t dance now, I make Money moves Thanks @champagnepapi for helping me gracefully “HANG UP MY JERSEY” OFFICIALLY! 3 years ago, I made a decision to leave the pole in my past, && I never looked back. I’m blessed and thankful to be a part. #MotivateTheStrippers #HoustonMade.”
The second stripper, Galore, was also thankful and wrote on Instagram: “Wow, made strip club history tonight. Got in, got out .. STILL relevant. S/O to the BOY !! @Drake”
Maliah, however, did not share the other women’s sentiments and she said as much on Instagram. She shared photos of herself in her stripper’s get-up and wrote:
“Contrary to “social media news” no man can retire me. I’m shaking this azz into a wheel chair. Maliah will retire Maliah #MaliahMondays”
Drake has once again proved himself in the music industry once again by winning a record 13 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.
The music magazine’s televised gala in Las Vegas hands out awards based on the year’s chart performances, leaving little suspense about who will end the night well — unlike the more prestigious Grammys, which are based on voting by music professionals.
Drake — the Toronto hip-hop star who has commanded the charts with a string of catchy hits including “One Dance,” “Hotline Bling” and “Fake Love” — edged out the record of the English balladeer Adele, who won 12 awards in 2012 in the wake of her breakthrough song “Someone Like You.”
Nicki Minaj opened the show with a nearly 10-minute hit medley as she sported a bondage-inspired suit of spikes and cuffs, while Celine Dion marked the 20th anniversary of the Hollywood blockbuster “Titanic” by singing its theme “My Heart Will Go On.”
Miley Cyrus sang her new song “Malibu,” a mid-tempo, jam-rock ballad about kindling love on the beach that marks a more mature sound for the former child star famous for her brazen sexuality.
