Drake booed off stage at Tyler, the Creator’s music festival


Drake‘s surprise headline appearance at Tyler, the Creator’s annual Camp Flog Gnaw festival ended in embarrassment for the Canadian hip-hop star, after he was booed off the stage by fans.

A number of videos, including an Instagram live recording that has since gone viral, suggested fans were expecting Frank Ocean would be the special guest.

Ocean is a friend and collaborator of Tyler, the Creator, and has recently released new singles including “In My Room” and “DHL”.

In awkward footage, Drake is seen telling the audience: “Like I said, I’m here for you,” and, “If you want me to keep going, I’ll keep going.”

He was then met with a chorus of “no!”s and booing, to which he responded: “It’s been love. I go by the name of Drake, thank you for having me,” before leaving the stage.

His exit took place a reported 20 minutes before his set was supposed to conclude.
