[ICYMI] – Kanye for President on the Kaya Central #Awesome4some
It seems Kanye West was not joking when he initially announced his interest to run for President of the United States of America this time last year. The 39 year old rapper has come to the front with details as to why he wishes to throw his hat into the ring in 2020. In a recent interview West explained that while he did not necessarily hold any political views, his ideals were the passion he has for people and his perspective on humanity.
“When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views. I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth,” West was quoted as saying.
West first alerted the world to his presidential ambitions during his acceptance speech at the VMA awards last summer.
Now, Kanye I’mma let you finish but before I do I just want to let you know that there are other musicians who feel politically inclined to run for office too! Who would have thought that Yousou N’Dour wanted to run for President in Senegal, Wycliff Jean wanted to run for President in Haiti and that Fela Kuti ran for President in Nigeria.
Kanye for President? Let’s cross that bridge when we get there!
