Kanye West made headlines and erupted mixed emotions and ideas when he decided to rock his ‘White lives Matter’ at the 9th season of his Yeezy fashion show.
Mixed reactions surfaced on the internet. American conservatives were fully in support of the act, some African Americans viewed him as a sell-out, and others who felt the Black Lives Matter organization was a scam saw reason with his act. But we called him out for what it was, a fancy way to promote his show on negative race relations just as Black Lives Matter raised money on doing the same.
Nevertheless, Ye made an appearance on Tucker Carlson in an interesting interview to explain his ‘White Lives Matter’ antics, Kim Kardashian and his relationship with his dad, and how his mom kept him out of his life.
On the ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt, Tucker Carlson questioned the designer Why he did that and what did it mean.
Kanye Replies “I do certain things from a feeling, I just channel the energy it just feels right. Using a gut instinct and a connection with God…God is preparing us for the real battle, and we are in a battle with the media.”
In the multiverse of his explanation, he includes how his ‘ex-black panther’ dad was in support of the ‘White Lives Matter’ antics by stating that Kanye was stating the obvious.
Finally, he answered, “The answer why I wrote ‘White Lives Matter’ on a shirt is because THEY DO!”
He further explains how he and his dad had a strange relationship because he was taken away from him by his mum who was politically a liberal with people interfering with her relationship with her dad.
In the wider conversation, he explains how this was very relative to him because he was having the same experience with Kim Kardashian and his children as the media tried to separate him from them when he bought a house next to them so Kim will not be able to keep him away from his children.
The two-part interview was uploaded on youtube, watch below.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
