Champagne Papi is a basketball enthusiast, there’s no denying that. Now that the 35-year-old is open about having a son, it seems that he’s starting young Adonis with the sport at an early age. And it may just pay off, as the 4-year-old has a pretty good shot. Adonis may have a future in the NBA.
On Easter Sunday, a proud Drake shared footage of his son playing basketball. In the video, which was uploaded to Instagram Stories, the 3-year-old baller can be seen shooting hoops against a white wall at home. Adonis showed off his skills, sinking shot after shot in his socks.
When he gets to 10, Drake can be heard coaching him from the sidelines saying “as hard as you can”. Adonis lets out a yell as he tosses the ball with all of his might and the room erupts into a loud cheer as it swooshes into the basket. The young boy’s friend comes over to give him a congratulatory hug following his awesome shot before he yells out, “now watch this.”
“Two times” he exclaims as a female voice, possibly his mother Sophie Brussaux cheers him on in English and French. His dad’s No. 1 hit “What’s Next” can be heard playing off the speaker. Adonis’ Papi was filled with pride, sharing the clips with his 78 million followers and adding a series of water droplet emojis.
The Canadian star has been sharing lots of footage of his kid this week as they spend the ongoing holiday season together. On Christmas Eve he shared a sweet video to his feed with Adonis and a friend crawling all over the “Girls Want Girls” recording artist, fighting for a chance to be in the centre of the camera. “Merry Christmas From The Gang,” Drake captioned the adorable clip, which includes plenty of heartwarming laughs and has been viewed nearly 6.5 million times.
