Kranium has been getting tremendous media attention locally and internationally as his hit single, 'Nobody Has To Know', continues to gain momentum. Though he predicted the song's success, Kranium could not predict what happened last Sunday.

While performing in Houston, Texas, on the weekend, international hip hop artiste Drake showed his versatility when he sampled Kranium's mega-hit.

In front of a packed audience, Drake belted out the lyrics to the chorus of the widely popular song.

Kranium then took to his Facebook page to spread the word. On Sunday, the Jamaican-born artiste posted a 16-second video of the performance with the caption, "Drake singing 'Nobody Has to Know' last night in Houston, TX."

Since then, the post has had more than 150 likes and more than 60 shares. Many Facebook users have been commenting on the international appeal of the song, with many predicting its success to grow even further.

While some professed their love for Drake for always supporting Jamaican music, others blasted the entertainer for attempting to sing a song in Jamaican Creole, stating he should "stick to rapping".

"Drake a spoil it," one user said, while another claimed, "Drake need to stick to his own songs."

Drake is not the only artiste to sample Kranium's work. Earlier this month, fellow dancehall artiste Ishawna released a counteraction to the popular hit.

Since its release, the single, Everybody a Guh Know, has been creating a buzz on the streets.
