Los Angeles: Drake fans were in for a surprise at the Billboard Music Awards as the rapper revealed himself to be a Game of Thrones follower.
The recording artiste, who took home the Top Billboard 200 Album award for his 25-track 'Scorpion', was excited by the shock reveal in the show thanks to fan favourite GoT character Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams).
After thanking his family, friends, and contributors for the award, a true fan, Drake acknowledged Arya's achievement in the latest episode of the HBO series - without giving out any spoilers.
"And hey, shout-out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week," the rapper exclaimed at the end of his speech, which led to a resounding applause and screams from the audience members.
Some people took to Twitter to share their glee about Drake being a GoT fan.

While some fans were all praise for the rapper mentioning Arya's name in his address, others expressed concern over the character's future in the remainder of the epic fantasy series after his hat tip. The rapper is infamous for jinxing any team he supports publicly.
Drake just thanked Arya Stark at the #BillboardMusicAwards ... which sadly means Arya Stark is dead. Drake is the biggest jinx in all of media.
