Kanye West is ‘out of place’, interviewing him is irresponsible – Akon

Akon has said that recent interviews with Kanye West are “irresponsible” and that the American rapper is currently “in the wrong place”.

The Senegalese-American singer sought to clarify recent comments he made in which he defended the rapper’s views, saying he condemns all forms of hatred.

It comes after West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, gave an interview with American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones last week in which he praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Akon, a personal friend of West, previously told Sky News that the rapper’s latest comments are unrelated to him “because they don’t affect me personally”.

But speaking to Channel 4 News, he said he was caught off guard by questions about the rapper and that his answers were taken out of context.

“That answer isn’t based on what it’s drawn to,” Akon told Channel 4.

“You know, Kanye makes comments every day. You can’t keep up with all the derogatory remarks he’s making.

I know him personally. I don’t believe he’s in the right place. Honestly, interviewing him is so irresponsible, I don’t believe anything he says people should pay attention to.Akon

“And I feel it’s not fair to take that one comment and apply it to my answer when I didn’t know that was what he said 24 hours ago.”

When asked about his relationship with West, he replied: “I know him personally. I don’t believe he’s in the right place.

“Honestly, it’s irresponsible to interview him, I don’t believe anything he says makes people pay attention.

“Anyone who knows me knows that Kanye and I are not the same.

“We have completely different views. I would never, under any circumstances, hold the same opinion as Kanye on that matter.

“I don’t support him. It’s everyone’s opinion and you are entitled to your own opinion. I didn’t know it would be connected to something he specifically said.

“I condemn hate. Stage = Stage. I don’t care who – if my mom hates me, I won’t agree with her.”

Last week, West’s Twitter account was suspended after violating the platform’s anti-incitement to violence policy, following a series of erratic tweets, one of which appeared to display a text combo icon. ten thousand and the Jewish star.

His previous anti-Semitic remarks led to the termination of lucrative partnerships, including with German sportswear brand Adidas.
