American rapper Kanye Omari West alias Kanye West on Sunday, July 19, kicked off his campaigns in the race to US presidency.
Kanye, who announced his bid to vie for president on July 5, addressed voters in North Charleston, South Carolina where he outlined some of his agenda.
Among issues the musician addressed was abortion which he said should remain legalised adding that any struggling new mother “should get a million dollars.”
At some point, the rapper broke into sobs as he talked about abortion. Kanye said his father was a very busy man and as such, wanted his mother to abort him.
“My mother saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West. My father wanted to abort me because my dad was too busy.
I almost killed my daughter when my wife (Kim Kardashian) brought her to the world when I didn’t want to,” said Kanye who was wearing a brown security jacket with “2020” shaved into the side of his head.
Section of voters is, however, still confused on whether or not Kanye is serious about locking horns with President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden during the November 3 election.
Others believe the move to vie for the presidency could be a publicity stunt for one of his music projects.
Kanye has failed to meet the requirement to be on the ballot in many states. However, he was last week cleared to be on Oklahoma’s presidential vote.
By 8am Monday, July 20, he is expected to have collected 10,000 signatures to be given clearance for South Carolina presidential ballot.
“Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations You can also sign up at the website,” he tweeted.
