#SPOTTED: DRAKE, USHER & MORE AT 2014 OVO FESTIVAL
In what has become known as an annual Cavalcade of Urban Music Stars, Drake presented Toronto the fifth annual OVO Festival at Molson Amphitheatre this weekend, timed together with Caribana (Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival). Once again, Toronto’s Homeboy did not disappoint, unveiling a surprise list of Performers including Lauryn Hill, J. Cole, Tinashe, DJ Khaled, Trey Songz, 50 Cent & G-Unit and of course the biggest Jawdropper of all, Usher! And we were among the first to confirm with our eyes that Usher was in fact here, rushing in and out of his Yorkville Hotel earlier today with his Entourage. Outkast returned to the stage to headline the first night of the Festival Sunday.
Drake zipped through 40 songs from his three-album Discography, and even brought his proud Mom, Sandi Graham, on-stage at one point. He confirmed his plan to proceed work on his next Album in Toronto after touring with Lil Wayne.
Although he v. much was focused on work today, which left several Fans waiting outside his Residence hoping for a little acknowledgment frustrated, the multi-talented Magnate delivered his best foot forward leaving OVO Festival Goers completely satiated!
Others in town including NBA Star Kevin Durant, Justin Bieber‘s Manager Scooter Braun and several more came out to support the Show tonight.
The most giving of all Performers to Fans had to be Usher who surprised just about everyone waiting outside his Hotel, taking a Photo with anyone who asked. Believe me, this is an absolute rarity for the Megastar as I have counted multiple failed attempts to get that coveted Photo with him. But this time I succeeded! His is now prepping the release of his eight Studio Disc, Everything You Can Imagine!
