Barely a month after his divorce from his wife Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has been declared by Forbes as the richest black man in America, and the first black billionaire in America.
His personal life might be on an all- time low, but his financial life is definitely on the rise.
According to Forbes, Kanye West is worth up to $6. 6 million and most of his net worth is because of his fashion brand ” Yeezy” . In 2019, the rapper was worth just $250 million. That’ s a really big difference in such a short period.
He and Taylor Swift however later became friends, as they were later seen having dinner together and laughing together. Then In 2016, In his song titled ” famous” , Kanye West sang that ” I feel like I and Taylor might still have sèx, why? The case I made that bïtch famous” This did not go down well with a lot of people, Taylor Swift included and after the whole issue, he decided to take a break from music.
The rapper gave his life to Christ and even released a gospel album. He started his own Sunday services later in 2019 for anyone interested in serving the Lord and that continued for a long time and he got support from his entire family for this.
In 2013, Kanye West collaborated with Adidas and released his footwear design, and in 2015, West released his first clothing line also in collaboration with Adidas. His fashion brand has continued to grow ever since, and in 2017, in collaboration with his ex- wife Kim Kardashian, he released a kiddies clothing line.
Whenever Kanye West is to launch a new clothing line, it is always done in a huge and very unique way. This was no different and to release the kiddies clothing line, his daughter North West sang at the launch party and it was the most beautiful thing ever. It was talked about for a long time, because of how unique the launch was.
In 2020, Kanye West announced that he would be contesting for the presidency and even started campaigning before he decided to cancel it and contest in the next presidential elections instead.
This year 2021, Kanye West had a very peaceful divorce from his wife Kim Kardashian. Kanye West’ s mental health was said to be the main reason for the divorce because Kanye West is bipolar, and in as much as he is her husband, he is still an adult and she cannot lock him up and stop him from doing certain things that would hurt the both of them.
The journey to success is not always a smooth road.
