Drake met an old couple at a basketball game who didn’t know who he was and named them his ‘new parents’


Drake met an older couple at an NBA game who didn’t recognise him - and he soon crowned them his “new parents”.

The rapper - who was sitting courtside at the Oklahoma City (OKC) Thunder and Houston Rockets game with a friend - happened to be sitting next to an older couple who didn’t realise that he was a world-known musical artist.

As cameras started to show the “Certified Lover Boy,” the older gentleman appeared to ask if he was a notable person.

Drake was evidently entertained with the exchange and started to laugh as he called for the camera to focus on his new pal.

Rumble, OKC’S mascot, also got in on the moment.

After the priceless interaction, the rapper took to his Instagram Story to post a picture with the couple with the caption: “My new parents.”

Once people on Twitter saw the video circulate, they joked about the couple not realising his stardom while questioning Drake’s decision to be in Oklahoma City.

“LOVE this old couple who have ZERO clue who Drake is,” someone wrote.

“He could be anywhere in the world tonight and chose Oklahoma City,” another added.

Someone else suggested that they should’ve gone to the game and wrote, “Drake?? In OKC?? [I] should have gone to the game tonight.”

According to TMZ, Drizzy was at the game to support Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the OKC Thunder, who also happens to be from Toronto, Canada.

Gilgeous-Alexander scored 39 points in the 114-110 loss to the Houston Rockets.

I love it. People of different ages and colors getting along, enjoying each other's company. Thanks for proving the haters wrong. ( the media, etc.)

This is so sweet and shows that the majority of us really do like and enjoy each other and this is the media’s biggest nightmare. The media would have you believe differently. The majority of people get along and respect each other.
