An eagle-eyed fan of rapper Drake spotted him arriving at Lanseria near Johannesburg on Friday, barely a day after the singer was declared to have the longest-running UK number one single this century, supplanting on-off girlfriend Rihanna for her 2007 hit “Umbrella”.
Drake topped the singles chart for an 11th straight week with “One Dance”, a collaboration with Wizkid and Kyla. Drake was caught by two fans who posted the footage on Twitter.
