Drake has thanked Kanye West for covering for him after he was forced to pull out of Wireless Festival.

The Canadian rapper had to cancel his headline slot in Finsbury Park and Birmingham due to sickness, so Kanye included some of the star's music in his own set in London.

Drake has now posted a picture on Instagram of Kanye on stage, and thanked him for taking over.

"Man I appreciate Kanye playing Trophies at Wireless so much," he said.

"I want to be at all the shows more than anything in the world right now. I just keep watching the video over and over. Slow motion for me right now but I promise all the fans an incredible experience as soon as I am back. I am so sorry once again I love you all dearly."

He ended the message by saying: "Thank you Ye for giving me that joy tonight."

When Drake dropped out of Wireless he told fans in a statement that it broke his heart not to be performing.

"I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me," he said.

Kanye played snippets of Drake's songs including Headlines, We Made It and All Me.

He told the crowd: "My homeboy Drake can't be here but we still gotta rep(resent) for him tonight."
