In a whirlwind of surprise and excitement, Toronto’s very own Drake and the inimitable Nicki Minaj set the stage ablaze during her Pink Friday 2 World Tour stop at Scotiabank Arena.


The crowd of 19,800 erupted into cheers as Drake, affectionately known as the ‘king of Toronto’, joined Nicki onstage for a stunning performance, according to Daily Mail.

The duo stunned fans by debuting the live rendition of their 2023 hit collaboration, Needle. It sent waves of nostalgia and adoration through the audience.

Drake, ever the showman, planted a long kiss on Nicki’s cheek, sealing the moment with a touch of genuine affection.


“It’s been too long,” Drake, born Aubrey Graham, remarked. He captured the sentiment of the electrified crowd.

Nicki, in her characteristic style, showered praise on her Young Money partner, hailing him as an “icon” and “legend” before the audience.

But the surprises didn’t end there.


As Nicki made a quick costume change, she graciously handed over the stage to Drake. She allowed him to captivate the audience solo with his 2023 track Rich Baby Daddy.

Reflecting on a memorable night, Nicki took to Twitter to express her joy, as reported by Billboard.

“He made me so happy tonight by coming out. Them screams be real different when the boy touch down chi.”

However, the evening took a tantalising turn as Drake hinted at a potential follow-up to his diss tracks aimed at rap rival Kendrick Lamar.


With a hint of mystery in his voice, Drake teased, “You know what time it is — you know what I have to do.”

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar had dropped a fiery six-minute diss track titled Euphoria just hours before, reigniting their longstanding feud, according to Complex.

The tension between the two rap giants escalated further as Drake responded to Kendrick’s jabs with a clever Instagram story. He invoked the classic lines from 10 Things I Hate About You.

The feud, which dates back to 2013, continues to captivate fans and industry insiders alike.


In other news, Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, received permission to accompany her on her tour. He served as the primary caregiver for their three-year-old son, affectionately nicknamed ‘Papa Bear’.

Kenneth, described as a ‘music industry professional’, has been granted the opportunity despite his legal troubles. This added another layer of intrigue to Nicki’s tour journey.

With an unforgettable show in Brooklyn, the spotlight shines brighter than ever on Nicki Minaj as she continues to mesmerise audiences worldwide.


With each performance, she reaffirms her status as a powerhouse in the music industry, captivating millions with her unmatched talent and charisma.

As the Pink Friday 2 World Tour marches on to the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on 8 May, fans eagerly anticipate what surprises Nicki Minaj has in store next.

One thing is certain: wherever Nicki goes, excitement and entertainment are sure to follow.
