Who is Sandi Graham?
Sandra ‘Sandi’ Sher was born an Ashkenazi Jew in Canada, on 28 January 1960 – her zodiac sign is Aquarius, and she holds Canadian nationality. She’s a former English teacher and florist, while she’s probably known best for being the mother of Aubrey Drake Graham, a famous Canadian rapper and actor.
Early life and education
Sandi was raised in Canada as an only child by her parents, about whom only a little is known, because she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her mother was a cleaning lady, and that her father was the manager of a supermarket.
Sandi grew up being interested in a couple of activities, and enjoyed playing tennis with her friends, and practicing acting the most.
She attended a local high school, at which she appeared in school plays and continued to play sports, but without competing. She was 17 when she began working as a waitress, wanting to be able to financially support herself.
Sandi matriculated in 1978, and while she hasn’t spoken of her further education, some of her fans believe that she enrolled at college, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English language and literature in 1982.
Sandi hasn’t shared a lot about her career, but it’s still known that she began working as an English teacher upon graduation, and that she became a florist in the early 2000s, a job which she’s still doing today.
Love life and marriage
Sandi met African-American drummer Dennis Graham while he was performing at a club in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The two dated for around two years, prior to exchanging vows in a private ceremony, attended by only a couple of their closest friends and family members.
Sandi gave birth to their son Drake in Toronto on 24 October 1986, but they divorced when he was five; Sandi then raised Drake on her own, as Dennis was sentenced to spend several years behind bars in Memphis, Tennessee USA on drug-related charges.
Neither Sandi nor Dennis have spoken of any other people whom they have perhaps been with, and as of May 2022, Sandi seems to be unattached, was married to Dennis Graham, and has a son with him.
Hobbies and other interests
Sandi’s a huge animal lover, and has both donated money to and volunteered at various animal shelters; her favorites are dogs and turtles.
She’s into travelling, and has been all around Canada and the US, mostly thanks to her son who often takes his mother with him while travelling for work; Sandi has also travelled overseas, visiting various European and Asian countries, but her favorite city remains Toronto.
She has donated money to several charity organizations which aim to improve the quality of life for underprivileged children.
Sandi likes to listen to music in her spare time, and her favorite performer is her son Drake; she’s also a huge fan of jazz, with her favorite musician being the late Miles Davis.
She’s into watching movies in the evenings – her favorite actor is Morgan Freeman, while a couple of her favorite films include “The Shawshank Redemption”, “Bruce Almighty” and “The Bucket List”.
Age, height and net worth
Sandi’s age is 62. She has long blonde hair and blue eyes, her height is 4ft 8ins (1.42m) and she weighs around 80lbs (35kgs).
As of May 2022, her net worth has been estimated at more than $1 million, while her son Drake’s net worth stands at over $250 million.
Who is her son Drake?
Drake’s zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds Canadian nationality. He became popular following the release of his debut album “Thank Me Later” on 15 June 2010, which topped the US Billboard 200 Chart, while Drake’s today one of the best-selling musicians, as his albums have sold close to 200 million copies.
Until turning 12, Drake and Sandi lived in the Weston Road neighborhood of Toronto; he was mostly into playing minor hockey during those years, and was a member of the team Weston Red Wings.
The two then moved to the Forest Hill neighborhood, and Drake went on to study at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute; he became interested in art during his time there, and thus went on to study at Vaughan Road Academy. Because Drake had already launched his acting career and wasn’t able to attend classes, he chose to drop out; he eventually returned to school and completed his high school education in October 2012.
He was 15 when cast to play Jimmy Brooks in the teen series “Degrassi: The Next Generation”, and went on to appear in more than 100 episodes from 2001 to 2008.
It was in 2006 that Drake released his debut mixtape “Room for Improvement”, but it only sold around 6,000 copies; his second mixtape “Comeback Season” followed in 2007, and his third “So Far Gone” in 2009.
Drake revealed in November 2010 that his following album would be “Take Care”; its lead single “Headlines” came out on 9 August 2011, and peaked at #13 on the Hot 100 Chart. “Take Care” was released on 15 November 2011, and won Drake a Grammy for Best Rap Album. He went on to simultaneously work on his acting and rapping career, and voiced Ethan in the 2012 animated adventure comedy movie “Ice Age: Continental Drift”.
Drake’s three following albums were “Nothing Was the Same”, released on 24 September 2013, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” which came out on 13 February 2015, and “Views”, released on 29 April 2016. His new studio album “Scorpion” came out on 29 June 2018 and topped the Billboard 200 Chart, selling around 750,000 copies in its first week.
Drake has since released the album “Care Package”, on 2 August 2019, the mixtape “Dark Lane Demo Tapes” on 1 May 2020, and his album “Certified Lover Boy” on 3 September 2021.
Between 2009 and 2016, Drake was in an on-and-off relationship with Barbadian singer and actress Rihanna. He then dated French painter and model Sophie Brussaux, who gave birth to their son Adonis on 11 October 2017. He’s been with a couple of women since his and Sophie’s split in 2017, including American musician Mulan Vuitton, American model and social media star Johanna Leia, and American model Hayley Karrina.
