Drake paid his respects to a teenage fan from London who passed away last week.

17-year-old Jamal Utton from Sutton, died during a trip to Canada with his school's rugby team. He is reported to have drowned while swimming in Shawnigan Lake, in Vancouver Island on Sunday.

The teenager is said to have been a huge fan of Drake and his friends used the hashtag #DrakenoticeJamal to gain the attention of the Toronto rapper.  


 

Heard this young man was a big fan. Rest In Peace Jamal. Watch over me from way up above!

Drake responded by posting a photo of Utton on his Instagram. "Heard this young man was a big fan. Rest In Peace Jamal. Watch over me from way up above!" he wrote in the caption

Several of Jamal's friends, as well as people who never knew him but joined in the campaign, have since tweeted to express their gratitude.
