Kanye West thanks ‘God, fans and all of my Christians’ for Billboard Music Awards success

Written by on 19/10/2020

Kanye West celebrated his Billboard Music Awards success with a video on his Instagram page.

The rapper, 43, thanked “God, fans and all of my Christians” after scooping four gongs at the awards show on Wednesday, including Top Gospel Artist, Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Album and Top Gospel Album for Jesus is King.

Speaking while seated in an SUV, Kanye, who was unable to attend the awards show as he continues his U.S. presidential campaign, declared: “I wanted to just thank God for my nine Billboard nominations, it’s the most of the night… the four wins.

“Thank the Billboard Awards, thank all of my fans, thank all of my Christians that’s been praying for me, praying for the day when I would serve the Kingdom,” he added. “You know, God just keeps showing up. The incredible increase and the favour.”

Kanye captioned the video: ‘Thank God for the favor the increase and these YEEZY SLIIIIIIIDZZZZ… Thank Billboard awards for the 9 nominations and 4 wins. Invite me next time and I’ll pull up.”

It will no doubt come as a relief to Billboard bosses that Kanye was happy with his awards haul, weeks after Kanye shared a clip of himself urinating on his Grammy Awards, after publishing screenshots of his contract with Def Jam Recordings, which is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.

The rapper is fighting for the opportunity to buy back his masters from bosses at the company.
