Drake OVO cancelled cancellation

It seems the much-anticipated Young Money record label reunion at OVO Music Fest wasn’t meant to be. At least not for the time being anyway.

Canadian rapper and OVO Music Fest founder, Drake, announced on his IG just hours before the event that the Young Money reunion which was to happen on the very last day of the OVO Music Fest was being canceled.

OVO Fest Canceled Due to COVID-19

Also in his announcement came news that the reason for the cancellation was due to the 6ix god testing positive for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

“I am truly devastated to say that I tested positive for COVID and the Young Money Reunion show scheduled for tonight is being rescheduled to the SOONEST date possible,” stated Drizzy on IG.

The reunion would have been the first time in seven years that all three Young Money superstars (Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj) performed together. A Young Money reunion has been a rumour making the rounds for years getting fans excited over a music label that gave birth to Drake and owned the music charts in the 2000s.

Fans shouldn’t get too down as Drake was quick to make sure people understood that this was just a postponement and not a total cancelation of the event.

“I will keep the city posted and share the new date whenever we have it locked. Until then I hope everyone stays safe and healthy and I love you all, I’m so sorry for letting you down on our weekend together and the moment I test negative I will give you everything I got on stage (except COVID),” ending his IG announcement.

First Time Festival Takes Place Since 2019

2022 marked the first time that the OVO Fest was able to take place in Toronto since 2009. OVO started off last Thursday when Drizzy hosted an all-Canadian night of performances including ones from Nelly Furtado, Jully Black, and K-OS.

At the time of this writing, it is still unclear if ticket purchasers will receive a refund.

This is the second time Drake has contracted COVID-19. The Grammy award winner tested positive for the virus for the first time last summer.
