It’s been a busy few days for self declared ‘greatest rock star on the planet’, Kanye West.

Mr Kim Kardashian held a fashion show for his third “Yeezy” collection, dropped The Life of Pablo, claimed to be $53m in debt, appealed to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1bn in his ‘ideas’, called for ‘white publications’  not to comment on black music anymore, performed on Saturday Night Live, started a feud with Taylor Swift and also claimed that Bill Cosby is innocent.


He then went on to seemingly suggest he is more in need of charity than Africa.


We’ll gloss over the fact that Africa is a continent and NOT a country, but is he really a worthy recipient of aid?
