Rap superstar Drake held a huge $40K party to say goodbye to London last night at a top central London nightclub.
Drake took his 20-strong entourage to Paper nightclub and they had a wild party that went on into the early hours. He arrived pretty late and headed straight to the VIP arena and then partied hard in the DJ booth with UK rap artist Giggs and Chip (a UK rapper formerly known as Chipmunk).
The crowd went crazy when Drake came in the room and were thrilled that he got involved and performed alongside MC Giggs and performed tracks from his new album More Life.
The event was originally planned to be a live performance for up-and-coming US rapper Young Thug, who performed earlier and Drake came to see him and then ending up taking to the stage himself.
One onlooker said: “The club was packed and then when Drake came into the DJ booth everyone in the venue pushed towards the front. The whole club was a sea of mobile phones as everyone was trying to post videos to Snapchat. It was incredible; usually you can only get to see him perform in a huge arena but here he was in a club performing to 250 people, it was fantastic.”
The nightclub’s dancers the PaperDolls were on stage performing with Drake as well and he looked clearly impressed with their very skimpy Bluebella lingerie outfits which left very little to the imagination.
The club went on till 3:30 am and Drake’s table was overflowing with over $40K worth of bottles of Dom Perignon vintage champagne and Belvedere vodka which was his way of thanking his team for such a successful tour. Drake hardly drank at the event though as he is due to perform in Sheffield Arena tonight on the next stage of his Drake The Boy Meets World Tour.
The onlooker at the club said: “Drake had just one or two drinks but he had a great time, he was jumping up and down when Giggs was MC-ing and everyone loved his energy and whole place started jumping too.”
