From “So Far Gone” to recently released mixtape, “Dark Lane Demo Tapes”, certified lover boy Drizzy didn’t hesitate to show off his vast array of discography on the trailer for upcoming album – “Certified Lover Boy” (CLB).

Immediate the video begins, you see a young boy who plays the part of young Aubrey Graham as seen with the way his hair is styled as he and Drake position a love shaped pattern on the front left side of their hair.

The 1-minute long trailer had easter egg laid on every scene of the well directed and thoughtful trailer of the CLB album. Just some very few seconds after young Aubrey shows, we see him doing an impersonation of his first mixtape – “So Far Gone” – as we can see spotlight being shed upon young Aubrey and confetti raining on him.

The 00:13 mark of the video shows Drake re-creating his first commercially and well recognised album – “Take Care”

The next scene sees Drake giving an impression for his “Nothing Was The Same” album

Drake chooses to skip his game changing mixtape, “If You Are Reading This It’s Too Late” probably because the cover art is just a plain white background with words written on it as he skips to give us a subtle mention of one of the best-selling albums of the 2010’s in “Views” as he shows top elevation angles of buildings, like I said this is a subtle reference so many people might not notice it immediately

Once again Drake chooses to skip one of his the playlist project, “More Life” as the next reference Drake put is to his 2020 “ Dark Lane Demo Tapes” as we see Drake dressed in all-black with a ski mask revealing his eyes only.

As we can from the screenshot of “Dark Lane Demo Tapes”, Drake chose not to zoom in on his eyes fro the reference and this is not a mistake as Drake subtly implements a character from the popular video game and animation “Mortal Kombat” as the character shares same name with the title of his 2018’s album – “Scorpion”. Yet again, Drake uses the art of being subtle to reference one of his albums.

Form the glowing eyes, Drake references the Get Over Here animated character in Scorpion.

As the video for the trailer draws closer to the 1-minute part Drake reveals the name of his upcoming album – “Certified Lover Boy” and ends the video revealing the release date of the album to be January 2021

Just yesterday, now defucnt group (P-Square) and twin brothers, Peter and Paul Okoye celebrated their 39th birthday and wife to Peter aka Mr. P sent what seemed to be a message of peace and love in form of birthday congratulations to the twins

Apparently that clearly is not the case, at least with Paul Okoye aka Rudeboy who has taken to his Instagram story to blast her attitude which he tags she always “try to potray an angel” “while in the outside”.

Paul Okoye who in an all blot out statement revealed he and his Lola Omotayo-Okoye (and maybe Peter even) have not spoken in four years but somehow someway she always finds a way to come out of the shell every November 18, trying to preach message of goodwill to them (Peter and Paul) all in the name of Family.

He also claimed she is a “manipulative” and “they don’t know the evil you [Lola Omotayo-Okoye] do behind close doors”, stating it as the reason for him and elder brother, Jude Okoye leaving them alone. He also said he and his brother not being together is “exactly how you [Lola Omotayo-Okoye] wanted it.” His parting words to her were: “let your guilt deal with you.”
