KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — Grammy-winning rapper J. Cole has made a heartwarming gesture for one of his long-time fans by attending her college graduation ceremony recently.
The Dreamville rapper was seen attending the graduation ceremony at New Jersey’s Rowan University on Wednesday where surprised attendees can be seen sharing photos of his appearance on social media.
As it turns out, Cole was attending the graduation ceremony to see and congratulate his longtime fan, Cierra Bosarge — a die-hard fan whom he had met over a decade ago.
According to portal Complex, Bosarge first spoke to Cole back in 2013 after she called a radio station to express her desire of having J. Cole wish her happy birthday.
Three months later, Bosarge managed to meet her hero in person and also passed him a letter that she wrote prior to their meeting.
“In the letter it says all I went through. With being adopted, my parents were hooked on drugs, in and out of prison.
“At the time, both parents were in prison, so I asked him (J. Cole) if he could come to my (high school) graduation since they can’t,” Bosarge said.
Cole, upon learning the contents of the letter then made a wager with Bosarge saying that he will only attend her high school graduation if she manages to keep her grades up and get into a four-year university which she eventually did.
J. Cole showed up at Bosarge’s high school graduation day to fulfill his promise in 2015.
