Woman who received $50,000 scholarship in Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ video celebrate as she’s set to bag her Master’s Degree, Drake reacts


A lady who received a $50,000 scholarship from Drake in 2018, is set to obtain her master’s degree from the University of North Carolina.

In 2018, the rapper visited the University of Miami and donated a $50,000 scholarship to undergraduate student Destiny Paris James, who ended up starring in his “God’s Plan” music video. 

Drake presented  her the cheque of $50,000 in the music video to help complete her education.

The 23-year-old graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health in 2019 from the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill. She then proceeded for her Master’s at the same University, where she will be bagging an MSc in Public Health in Health Behavior in few days.

“Mama, I mastered it. Daddy, I did it,” Destiny, whose father died of cancer just as she completed her freshman year in Miami, wrote on Instagram. “4 days until I am officially UNC Alum.”

Drake, who follows her on Instagram, commented on her post: “LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DES,” he wrote, to which Destiny responded, “@champagnepapi [two blue heart emojis] THANK YOUUUU!!”
