Drake Spent Valentine’s Day With His ‘Favorite Person in the World’
This year, the “Hotline Bling” rapper spent his Valentine’s Day with Kim Janzen, the woman who helped Drake graduate from high school. Drake, who was spending the weekend in Toronto after leading Team Canada to victory at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in his hometown, took to Instagram sing his praises for the dedicated educator.
“My date for tonight’s game…who else but my favorite high school teacher who helped me graduate 3 years ago and also knows more about basketball than anybody,” he captioned a selfie with Janzen. “Happy Valentines hope everybody is getting love from somewhere.”
Drake graduated from high school in 2012 after missing out on a lot of schooling due to his work on Degrassi. He was about to turn 26 when he received his diploma.
97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!

Last year, Drake called Jansen his “favorite person in the world” for helping him get an education.
“[She’s] the woman who taught me to take responsibility for my actions and also gave me the confidence to write and express myself” he said in another Instagram post with Janzen. “My teacher Kim Janzen in a freshie pose for the 6 side!!!”
