US Elections is coming off on the 3rd of November 2020 and rapper Kanye West is contesting for presidency.
Speaking on how he got where he is now, he noted in a new interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Saturday evening, saying it was “something God put in his heart back in 2015”.
He said God called him to become president about 5 years ago but he just laughed it off.
Kanye said this happened few days to the MTV Music Awards but he didn’t know what to make of it so he just laughed if off.
“IT HIT ME IN THE SHOWER AND WHEN I FIRST STARTED TO THINK OF IT, I JUST STARTED LAUGHING AT MYSELF AND JOY CAME OVER MY BODY,” THE 46-YEAR-OLD SAID.
He continued that it took him a very long time to decide on pursuing this call. But when he finally did so, a lot of people tried to discourage him. But he’s intrinsically feeling energised and elated to pursue this call.
“I HAD DIFFERENT FRIENDS, SOME PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, TECH ELITES. THEY JUST REALLY TOOK IT AS A JOKE. THEY’RE TELLING ME ALL THESE MILLIONS OF REASONS WHY I COULDN’T.
“I REMEMBER RUNNING INTO OPRAH ONE OR TWO DAYS AFTER THAT (THE AWARD), SHE SAID, ‘YOU DON’T WANT TO BE PRESIDENT’ (LAUGHS).”
Recalling his response to one of the naysayers, Kanye said,
“I’LL DEFINITELY BE A BILLIONAIRE BY THAT TIME (NOT THAT IT’S A REASON SOMEONE SHOULD BECOME PRESIDENT) BUT IT’S TO SAY THAT AROUND THAT TIME I WAS ABOUT $50 MILLION IN DEBT AND I KNEW I HAD THE CONFIDENCE TO TURN THAT AROUND”.
This confidence, he said, could lead him to the presidency.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed to see what happens. So far, the most popular presidential choice for Americans is either Trump or Joe Biden.
