R&B singer/rapper iLoveMakonnen, who was previously signed to Drake’s OVO Sound, is following in the footsteps of Frank Ocean by letting the world know he’s gay.
“As a fashion icon, I can’t tell u about everybody else’s closet, I can only tell u about mine, and it’s time I’ve come out,” he revealed in a personal message. “Since y’all love breaking news, here’s some old news to break, I’m gay. And now I’ve told u about my life, maybe u can go life yours.”
iLoveMakonnen’s announcement was met with a slew of negative comments from fans and followers, who claimed they were “lied to.” (We won’t add any of those here – IT’s REAL)
Nonetheless, he added on IG, “Thank you for letting me be myself.”
iLoveMakonnen is mainly known for his hit single “Tuesday,” featuring Drake. The record reached No.1 on the R&B chart and peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It has been certified platinum by the RIAA.
