Keith Sweat performed for Lil Wayne as he celebrated his 40th birthday with a lavish dinner party at The Nice Guy yesterday (Sept. 25) in Los Angeles, California.
You can tell the performance was the highlight of the night by the way Lil Wayne energetically jumped out of his seat to dance as the R&B legend sang his 1987 hit single “Don’t Stop Your Love.”
Lil Wayne, who was born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was celebrated by most of his friends and family including his children and his fiancé Dhea Sodano. Some of the legendary guests in attendance were Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe, Karen Civil, YG, Yella Beezy, Mack Maine, Cortez Bryant and more. He was also surprised with video messages from Drake, Floyd Mayweather, Max Kellerman, NBA YoungBoy, and more. The rapper’s actual birthday is tomorrow (Sept. 27).
