KanyiDaily had published a video that shows how George Floyd died last week Monday after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck for over eight minutes as the black man repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe.”

Derek Chauvin has since been fired from his department, and charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter.

However, the incident has prompted an outcry across the US and around the world with angry protesters demanding the arrest and prosecution of the three other officers involved in Floyd’s death.

Toronto poet and musician, Mustafa the Poet, made a $400 donation to the National Bail Out program to bail out George Floyd’s protestors before calling on his fellow countrymen – Drake and The Weeknd – to match his donation.

“My Toronto Kings @champagnepapi @theweeknd,” Mustafa wrote. “Swipe up & match my donation but add 3 zeros! Let’s help reunite black families.”

It wasn’t long before Drake answered the call and posted a screenshot of his receipt with a $100,000 donation charged to his American Express. “Say less brother,” he told Mustafa.

As George Floyd’s protests take place across the globe, National Bail Out and other bail relief programs have allocated funds to help protestors who can’t afford their own bail. The Minnesota Freedom Fund raised about $20 million in just four days.

Meanwhile, Boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather has offered to cover the funeral expenses for George Floyd, as well as other expenses that would come up during the memorial services on June 9, 2020.
