American rapper, Kanye West has said the first time he heard an inner voice telling him he would become the president of the United States of America, he had a good life about it.
He disclosed that his influential friends, including billionaire media entrepreneur, Oprah Winfrey however advised him against it. Kanye West revealed this during an interview with Joe Rogan’s podcast on Saturday evening.
“It hit me in the shower and when I first started to think of it, I just started laughing at myself and joy came over my body.
I had different friends, some people in the music industry, tech elites. They just really took it as a joke. They’re telling me all these millions of reasons why I couldn’t.
I remember running into Oprah one or two days after that (the award), she said, ‘You don’t want to be president’ (laughs),” he stated.
