Drake has posted an emotional tribute to his fan Kay, who recently passed away.
The Hotline Bling hitmaker took to Instagram on Sunday night (04Nov18) to share a picture of him wiping his eyes with a tissue while sat at Kay’s bedside in hospital. And in the caption, he confessed that he wished he had responded to the youngster, who he met through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, when she texted him on his 32nd birthday on 24 October.
“Gonna miss you a whole lot,” he wrote. “We met through make a wish and we built a genuine bond you would text me and check on me while I was on tour and tell me positive things and share your dreams and goals. I am crying in this pic but it was tears of joy cause we just prayed for you with your father.
“I am sorry I missed your text on my birthday that’s eating my soul right now but you know how much I loved you and was looking forward to seeing you after tour. I don’t know why I am writing this on IG I just need to get it out cause it’s sitting heavy on my heart. Will remember you forever K! (crying face emoji).”
The One Dance rapper, who concludes his co-headlining tour with Migos on 18 November, visited another young fan in hospital in August. He shared a snap of himself meeting 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez in Chicago, Illinois on the same day that she found out she would be getting a life-saving heart transplant.
“Me and my love Sofia talking about (Justin) Bieber and Owls and Basketball,” he wrote in the caption, followed by three blue heart emojis.
