American rapper, Kanye West reacts to losing $2bn in 24 hours

Kanye Omari West, better known as Kanye West or Ye, is an American rapper and fashion designer who has lost $2 billion in 24 hours after several brands cut ties with him due to anti-Semitic comments.

This comes less than 48 hours after Forbes, an American business magazine, announced that Kanye no longer has a place on its list of billionaires because his lucrative deal with Adidas has been terminated.

Balenciaga, MRC (the entertainment studio shelved an already completed Ye documentary), his talent agency CAA, Adidas, Jaylen Brown and Aaron Donald, Foot Locker, The RealReal, T.J. Maxx, and Madame Tussauds are among the brands that have severed ties with Kanye.

Reacting to the loss, the rapper, in a post on Instagram, explained that the people are who he is, not the money.

He wrote, ”I lost 2 billion dollars in one day, and I’m still alive. This is love speech, I still loves you; the money is not who I am, the people is who I am.”

Also, his school, Donda Academy, was affected as they were dropped from a high school tournament because of Kanye’s utterances.
