American rapper, Kanye West, has declared that he is now a Christian.
West said this at the weekend, when he was in Washington DC, where he held his usual Sunday service and also a listening party during which he gave fans a taste of his new album, titled ‘Jesus is King.’
According to TMZ , Kanye was at HBCU Howard University and then George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium later in the day for the listening party.
In the video obtained by TMZ , Kanye was seen talking to the audience in between tracks. It was during one of those speeches that he announced that he had become a Christian. His announcement was greeted by applause from the audience.
He also went on to invoke Jay-Z’s name during his speech, saying that unlike a line that he attributed to Jay — from his song “Can’t Knock the Hustle” — Ye isn’t here for entertainment anymore … he’s just here to spread the Gospel. How ’bout that?!”
Kanye has been holding Sunday services for almost a year now.
