Before Drake, Sandi was a teacher who met and married a professional musician. Their marriage did not last for long and she had to move on with life as a divorcee. After Drake began his career, she devoted her life to supporting her son and he treasures her forever.

Immediately Drake saw the faintest glimpse of success, Sandi was on top of his list. They moved from being concerned about not having enough to spend on necessities to spending on frivolous items. They continue being each other’s best buddies and she supports him with all she has.
Dennis Graham (father)
Date of birth: September 20
Dennis comes from a family of American-music royalty; his uncle is the legendary funk bassist Larry Graham. As a child, he taught himself to play the piano, guitar and even converted a thin bathtub into his first drum kit. He has pretty much been a drummer in one band or the other and around 18, he luckily joined his most famous band – he became a drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis.
Drake’s father was hanging out at a Memphis club when Lewis’s initial drummer came into the club broke and brought out a pistol. Graham delivered this news to Jerry and ended up backing up for him that night and it continued for a long time after then. Dennis is popular for his signature suits and moustache.
Graham moved from Memphis to Canada to further pursue his music career and that was how he met Sandi. They fell in love and got married but he did not last so long with her before a divorce. Dennis was so passionate about music that he left his home in pursuit of higher success in his career when his son was just five. He could not achieve the desire for growth in his career so Dennis turned to selling drugs to suffice for his insufficient funds and he later was incarcerated.
For years, Drake and his father had a sour relationship but as he progressed in his career they got closer. The multi-Grammy-award-winning artist is the only child to his parents but he has half-siblings.
