Drake's Wireless festival rider contained '500 Nando's chicken wings and 150 garlic breads'

By Zara Woodcock

Drake made his return to London a memorable one and ordered 500 Nando's chicken wings and 150 garlic breads in his Wireless rider, according to reports.

The Champagne Poetry rapper is no stranger to the UK scene and has clearly been missing the foods that come with it.

Wireless festival goers were shocked when the Canadian star made a surprise appearance on Friday following the release of his highly-anticipated album Certified Lover Boy.

An insider said Drake treated his entourage to a huge Nando's feast because what else would you do when you get to the UK?

A source told The Sun : "Drake's rider was huge - he made sure his whole team were well fed for his first perfomance back in Blighty.

"They had 500 chicken wings, 150 chicken thighs, 30 chips, 150 garlic breads, and some extra wraps thrown in for good measure."

Wireless 2021 saw the likes of Ivorian Doll, Lil Uzi Vert, Future, Giggs, Unknown T and more perform in London's Crystal Palace Park on Friday.

“Hey Wireless, the boy is home” was projected on the big screen erected behind the stage as Drake revealed his presence to the excited crowd.

Drake showed up on stage during Future's set, with the two performing the song Way 2 Sexy from Drizzy's new album CLB.

He also played Laugh Now, Cry Later and Life Is Good.

He told the crowd: "I miss you with all my heart. It's been way too long, I forgot what this feels like.

"I would not have wanted my first show back to be anywhere other than Wireless."

The Hotline Bling hitmaker was not advertised as one of the stars set to entertain but in recent days eagle-eyed fans suspected that he was going to perform at the festival.
