Former US President, Barack Obama has given the green light for Grammy Award-winning artiste, Drake to impersonate him in an upcoming movie.
In an interview with Complex, Obama was asked about the Toronto rapper’s comments from 2010 in which he told Paper playing the political figure was “the goal.”
I will say this, Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants, I mean, that is a talented brother. If the time comes, and he’s ready… Drake has, more importantly, my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”
Drake previously shared his interest in playing Obama in a film about the President’s life in a 2010 interview with Paper magazine.
I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”
