Video footage has now been sent to Scarcity of the moment gunshots were heard inside the upmarket Rosewood hotel during a private party.

Canadian rapper Drake performed at Wireless on Friday night (10 Sep) after joining Future on stage during his headline set.

The after party is alleged to have been hosted by the artist and attended by many celebrities.


He greeted the crowd by saying “London wassup,”

“Let me tell you something, I don’t even remember what this sh*t feels like. I just want to take this in, all these beautiful people. I’ve missed you so much.”

As part of his UK takeover, the rapper even changed the OXO Tower in London’s Southbank to the ‘OVO’ Tower, a nod to his October’s Very Own label and brand.

But news has broke of gunshots being fired outside the venue in the early hours of the morning.

It is said on Friday night after his Wireless performance there was a after party as reported by ukgossiptv.

Camden police issued a report confirming shots were fired at or outside the event at 4am.

Initial reports suggested someone was shot but police dismissed this claim.

Large cordon in place outside the hotel and forensics were present.

Drake just dropped his long-awaited sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy, early Friday morning.

The multi-platinum rapper first announced the project last August at the end of the music video for the first single, “Laugh Now Cry Later,” which was nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at this year’s Grammy Awards.

While he steadily released one-off singles and features, most notably the recent No. 1 hit “What’s Next” off this year’s Scary Hours 2 EP, the songs that made the album are unreleased music for the most part. Jay-Z, Future, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, Rick Ross, Lil Baby, and Project Pat all appear on the album.
