One person who seems to be enjoying the album is politician and pastor, Mmusi Maimane.

The leader of One Movement South Africa, took to Twitter where he posted the album cover of “Certified Lover Boy”, with a cryptic message that seemed to be a clear dig at the DA, a party he once led.

“When they ask me about the old situation…,” he tweeted. This was followed by saying: “want sympathy when they tried to end me”…

Things took a left turn when a Twitter user suggested he was too old to be listening to Drake.

“You are 46!!! (probably),” replied the tweep.

Maimane hit back with a spicy response: “I am 41. Jay Z is 51. You have no point, move on. Don’t forget to pick this up(L),” he wrote.

Maimane is no stranger to appreciating celebrities and their achievements. Last year he tweeted his adoration for Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle.

In his tweet, Maimane said, "May these two icons grow from strength to strength. Speak your truth and don’t back down. Rise further and multiply".

This came after the BFFs came under fire on Twitter in trends not related to each other.

Pearl, who starred in Netflix's “Queen Sono” made the trends list after she defended foreign African nationals living in South Africa.

"Killing African nationals that reside in South Africa is something I will never defend. Defending borders drawn by colonizers will never be something I limit myself with", she tweeted. She ended the tweet with the hashtag, #IamAnAfrican

DJ Zinhle went on to trend after her ex, AKA, tweeted that their daughter, Kairo Forbes was richer than a social media user who’d threw shade at him. Following his tweet, Kairo trended with many tweets about her taking aim at Zinhle.
