GettyImages-486013034While giving one of his signature long speeches as he received the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs, Kanye West gave a shocking revelation that he will be running for President in 2020.

We want to say we are surprised, but we really aren’t.

The rapper and producer was presented with the award by Taylor Swift and he ended his speech saying ‘…and yes, as you have probably guessed by now I will be running for President in 2020’.

Earlier in his speech Kanye West had admitted to smoking some marijuana before going on stage but regardless, his declaration is one that should probably not be taken lightly.

Does he have your vote?

The Vanguard Award recognizes musicians who have made a strong effect on MTV culture while also honoring their work. Past recipients of the award include Justin Timberlake, Beyonce,Britney Spears, U2 and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Miley Cyrus hosted the 2015 awards, with featured performances from Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Tori Kelly, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj, and Twenty One Pilots With A$AP Rocky.

      One of Donald Trumpet’s wife also posed NUDE!
      My question is, Is America lacking human. resources to allow that Trumpet mouth man gain momentum?
      At least I know that Kanye is more presidential than the “isi okuko”. (“Feather haired”)man who is so unpresidential!
      You know what, I like Kim she doesn’t pretend. I will choose Kanye over that racist!

      Smh. Apart from his music career what other successful business has Kanye run?. Don’t even say shoe line as he stocks with big corporations. I’m not even a Donald fan but to say Kanye is a better candidate is something else. Kanye can also be said to be racist. The same way he speaks his mind is the same way Donald does.

      Please tell them o! Kanye will make a far better president for Nigeria than Bokohari. Kim is more of First Lady material than million dollar watch Aysha. However, Kim can never be betta than Mama Peace!

    It’s called delusions of grandeur.

    Imagine a world where Kanye is president and Kim is the first Lady.
    Rapture would have happened. So I won’t witness it.

    No he may not win. But that nobody will vote for him? A lot will. Maybe not enough to get him into the white house. All these artists and sportsmen trying to spend their money in politics. Didn’t Wyclef try the same? George Weah too. So because we love your music, then you must be a good leader abi? Your mind is playing tricks on you. #IloveKimK

    Donald Trump and Kanye West are (i’m sorry to say this) both Narcissist. They seek power, they start there own religion, they play god. Kanye’s situation is simply “Never smoke weed before going to collect an award”………
