Kenyans Reaction on Kanye Making the Announcement
‘Will it happen’ is the big question that Kenyans are asking after the tease from the renown and celebrated artist.
However, Kanye seemed to have his eyes on the ball, sharing a video where he asked for help to get stadiums and big arenas for his tour.
“We just sold out the United Center in minutes. It is the only arena I had access to last year and when I call, they tell me it is not available for me and you know what that is.
So, if there is anyone out there who can help with this, please do,” said Ye.
At the same time, American artist Ty Dolla, who is also scheduled to release a joint album with Kanye is also set to be among the performing artist during the tour.
The album, dubbed “Vultures,” will have a listening party scheduled at Chicago’s United Center on February 8, 2024.
