Baka Not Nice – OVO, Drake, Wiki

Baka Not Nice is Drake’s former bodyguard.  Baka aka Travis Savoury spent more than a decade in jail.  When he got out, he hit the studio and Drake is proud of him.  He has been working hard on his music and it’s paying off.  Drake signed him to OVO Sound.  I love the fact that Drake is giving Baka a second chance.

Drake has endorsement deals with major companies and organizations including T-Mobile and the NBA.  He could have told Baka that he’s not able to sign him because of his criminal record but instead Drake decided to keep it real.  Baka no longer has to consider committing crime to survive.

Baka was convicted on human trafficking and assault charges

Baka went to jail for forcing a 22-year-old woman to prostitute.  The 39-year-old also stole money from her.  Luckily, the woman refused to testify against Baka.  I’m guessing she was paid off or threatened.  The following pic shows Baka on the day he was released from jail:

Drake’s career is on cruise control so signing a convicted felon won’t negatively impact his record label.  I can’t wait to see if Drake’s stamp of approval will lead Baka to a successful career.  Drake is responsible for Kodak Black’s success.  Let’s see if he can do the same for Baka.
