Canadian born Rapper, Drake met with the family of his on and off girlfriend, Rihanna.
The meeting took place backstage at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
Drake posed for pictures with Riri’s dad Ronald Fenty, mother, Monica Braithwaite and other siblings.
The rapper and Barbados born pop singer reenacted their love on stage as he read a moving citation before presenting #VMA Vanguard Award
He said, “This woman has surpassed all competition while still being the same girl from Barbados, surrounded by the same friends, speaking with the same accent, and never missing a Crop Over unless it’s to come perform at the OVO fest. We love the music, which can change styles from out in the album. We love the videos, which change their artistic vision from year to year, but most of all, we love the woman who hasn’t changed since day one.
She’s 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 even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry. Ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna.
