A famous Drake lookalike known as “Fake Drake” has an intriguing proposition for the real rapper.
The copycat, a man otherwise known as Izzy who also happens to be from Toronto, has increasingly gained notoriety for his striking resemblance to the multi-platinum entertainer. He even has Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” haircut.
“Fake Drake” has managed to fool audience members during his visits to nightclubs and at events, and has even performed some of the Canadian musician’s tunes for a paycheck.
During his recent appearance on the “We In Miami” podcast, “Fake Drake” took his impressionistic achievement to a whole new level, challenging Drake to a boxing match – and delivering a priceless prize.
“I challenge Drake to a boxing match. I just signed with Celebrity Boxing. If you win, I’ll change my name from Izzy Drake to just Izzy, you know,” he said during the episode that aired on Tuesday.
“If I win I need a million dollars and I need to be signed to OVO because I’m just trying to feed my family,” he added, referring to the Canadian label Drake founded. in 2012.
Champagne Papi reportedly gave Izzy his blessing for impersonating him last year, but has yet to take on the challenge.
However, OVO Mark, one of Drake’s oldest and best friends, lambasted “Fake Drake”.
“What a loser…. Get a life,” he commented on Instagram.
Earlier this month, Izzy posted a clip on Instagram of himself calling Drake to congratulate him on releasing his latest album “Honestly, Nevermind,” and seemingly confirming that the artist approves of his work.
“Yo, that album was tough, bro. Congrats on the drop,” he said in the video.
