Black American rapper, Kanye West, has announced he would be in the race for the 2020 U.S. presidency.

Mr. West said this while receiving the MTV music video awards from Taylor Swift in Los Angeles on Sunday. The last time the two met was in 2009 when Mr. West interrupted Ms. Swift’s Best Female Video speech.

Mr. West, in his acceptance speech said, “I don’t know what I’m gonna loose after this; it don’t matter at all, ’cause it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas bro, new ideas.

He said life was about people with ideas and those who believe in truth.

The rapper, however, ended his speech by saying, “And yes as you probably could have guessed by this moment….”

After a long wait as the audience cheered him on, he added, “I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

And the crowd went wild.

That came as a suprise as Mr. West has never been into politics.

If this happens and the rapper wins, it totally means that fashion icon, Kim Kardashian-West, his wife, will become First Lady of the United States, FLOTUS.
