Officially Billionaire: Kanye West and Forbes disagrees on figures.

“It’s not a billion, it’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.” Kanye West to Forbes.
“We have an informal rule “Trump Rule”, which is, take whatever Kanye insisted he worths and divide it by 3 and start honing from there.” Forbes



Kanye West and Forbes disagrees on figures

Forbes has officially declared Kanye West a Billionaire after the Hip Hop Superstar shared his financial records, where he revealed all his assets especially the Yeezy Sneaker empire.

Several attempts to get the true state of Kanye west’s assets from, Forbes has been taken into the world of Ye business empire where his source of wealth exists.

Ye had explained to them that he’s not a number guy, ten months ago.
“I’m not a numbers guy,” he explained ten months ago. “To ask me to somehow translate this to numbers is to ask your grandmother exactly what the recipe of the cake was,” he said.

However, he truly cares about billion dollars so much than any other thing.

The last time Forbes featured him on their cover where they unveiled the success story of the Yeezy brand, Kanye was pleased even presented them with some evidence of his riches.
But Forbes didn’t take his words as they refused to call him a billionaire as then.

Forbes insisted that there was insufficient documentation to call him a billionaire.

“Without sufficient documentation on his unusual stake, versus just his word and industry guesstimates, we didn’t call him a billionaire. And that grated on him. As the year wore on, he protested publicly.”

Trust Kanye West, he was very displeased with that development, he told an Industry Panel that no one at Forbes remembers

“I showed them an $890 million receipt and they still didn’t say ‘billionaire,’”

A few weeks later he texted to Forbes
A “disrespectful article,”
“purposely snubbing me.”

According to Forbes, after several months of the request, Ye yielded and granted them an audience.

He shared his financial records, revealing details on his wildly popular Yeezy sneakers empire—and his own net worth.

Forbes released their annual billionaire’s list earlier this month, and Ye was not including, this sparked a reaction from Kanye West.

“You know what you’re doing,” he texted. “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name.”

Kanye West…

He went on and texted to Forbes,

“purposely a part of a group of media” that was trying to suppress his self-made narrative because of his race”

Kanye West

Probably because is sister-in-law Kylie Jenner made the list but him, must be very provocative.

Kanye West didn’t find it funny as he sent his team to provide an authentic numeric look of Kanye, Inc.

According to Zack O’Malley Greenburg,

“Three things became clear from this exercise. First, it reinforces why we put him on the cover in the first place — West, in just a few years, has created a brand that’s challenging Nike’s Air Jordan for sneaker world supremacy. It’s one of the great retail stories of the century.

Second, it reinforced that West, who claims both in words and in this paperwork that he’s worth more than $3 billion, is as overly boastful as his political idol, President Donald Trump. Not a numbers guy? We agree.

Finally, and perhaps most critically to West, it does confirm, based on our estimates, that his stake in Yeezy indeed makes him a billionaire. A bit over $1 billion, actually.”

Forbes acknowledged that Yeezy is a complicated asset, but wholely owned by Kanye West.
However, it’s functionally tied to at least 5 years plus, from the Adidas who are the manufacturer, market chain and shoe distribution.

Forbes projected that the shoes would be finished in 2019, with revenue worths of $1.5 billion, with a final revenue that is close to $1.3billion.

In further details, according to Forbes,
They claimed that their sources told them that Ye’s royalty of Yeezy revenue from Adidas is 15%, which is close to 11% after the expenses, totalling about $140million was received by Kanye from last year’s sales.

In disputing the $3 billion worth claim by Kanye, Forbes insisted that the amount is exaggerated because the business is not infinitely portable, as he makes it seems.

” Taking Yeezy away from Adidas seems almost prohibitively cumbersome, if not contractually impossible,” Zack O’Malley Greenburg of Forbes wrote.

“A safer way to value it: as a royalty stream, like music publishing or film residuals. Multiples, based on services like Royalty Exchange or in large private transactions, can be as low as three, for something faddish like Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” to 17 for an evergreen asset like the Eddie Murphy film Trading Places. “

“Conservatively, as we typically are with such figures, a 10x multiple, applied to West’s Yeezy cut of $140 million makes his stake worth about $1.4 billion. But that’s a private, highly-illiquid $1.4 billion — our rule-of-thumb for private assets like that is to lop off at least 10%. That’s $1.26 billion.”

Forbes also considered that Kanye must have spent so much more as well, given his incredible successful recording career, Burgeoning Yeezy dividends.

Kanye Team stated that Kanye West has just $17 million in cash and $35 million in stocks.

His biggest assets, according to his internal team, are $81 million in “buildings and improvements” and $21 million in land.
.” A pair of $14 million Wyoming ranches—nearly 10,000 acres between the two of them—has been taking up more cash.
In order to determine the true state of his wealth, there’s $3,845,162 for “vehicles,” $297,050 for “livestocks.”

There’s $53 million in listed debt. And half of all this presumably belongs to his wife, though she’s no slouch and that math goes two ways.

His music record Worth.

Then there’s the matter of his music. Documents we reviewed show West’s G.O.O.D. label—and his own recorded music and publishing rights—to be worth at least $90 million. 

Forbes explained that they tend to be sceptical about self-appraisals as. As they weren’t moved by Kanye’s Trump-like claims.

They posited that his wife also own some of these assests too.

” Aside from the music, half of all this presumably belongs to his wife, though she’s no slouch and that math goes two ways. Given the illiquidity of these myriad assets and the lack of independent backup, we’re give all of this a 50% haircut: That’s about $125 million in assets, outside of his Yeezy crown jewel. Then, there’s debt: between mortgages, advances and other liabilities, we saw about $100 million that West is on the hook for.”

Forbes officially placed current Net Worth of Kanye West at $1.3 billion, which is $300million more than Kylie Jenner.

Kanye West Response:

He tested Forbes last night,

“It’s not a billion,”  “It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”

However, according to Forbes, they have an informal rule  “Trump Rule”, which is, take whatever Kanye insisted he worths and divide it by 3 and start honing from there.
Notwithstanding, Kanye West is now a Billionaire as confirmed by Forbes.

He is now hip-hop’s second Billionaire after Jay-Z.

AKA on assaulting late Anele: I am not a preparator of GBV





AKA finally speaks out through his legal team on accusation of assaulting his late fiancée, Anele Nelli Tembe.

The rapper plainly said the photos and videos that went viral on social media didn’t detail the full event.

Supa Mega distanced himself from Gender Based Violence and in an official statement shared by TshishaLive, he promises to answer every query.

Rudolph Baloyi, senior associate at Mabuza Attorneys said:

“Mr Forbes takes the current events playing out since this past Sunday seriously. It is regrettable that he and his brand are now associated with GBV. However, he assures his fans and the public that he is not a perpetrator of GBV. In due time he will respond fully to all questions and queries. Currently, the situation is heavy on him and his family as a whole.”

“It is also difficult to deal with public outcry and condemnation on social media. The screenshots from an unreleased video seen over the past weekend online are not a true reflection of the alleged situations that arose on the day.”

AKA still loves his late fiancée according to a statement published last Saturday; he said he’s not a suspect, rather a witness.

Meanwhile, a GBV organization have called out people and streaming platforms to mute the rapper’s song in other to get justice for Anele Tembe.

Widow of South African rugby star Lindani Myeni wants SA citizenship





Myeni is seeking South African citizenship in the hopes that her children, Nsizwa and Lindeni, can grow up in their father’s home country and learn more about their roots.

Last week, Lindsay said a final goodbye to her late husband, Lindani who was shot dead by Hawaii police last month during an altercation.

Myeni died in hospital after being shot four times by Honolulu police during an altercation that led to his fatal shooting.

Police were responding to an alleged burglary when Myeni who was born and raised in eSikhaleni was shot four times.

Lindsay has expressed gratitude to the South African government for its support, and for providing justice for her husband.

She is now asking them for assistance in giving herself and Lindeni citizenship, as Nsizwa already has citizenship having been born in the country.

“Myself and Lindeni are here on a holiday visa on an American passport, hoping for the South African government to assist us with citizenship,” said Lindsay.

“Since we came back after this horrific incident, we have been staying with Lindani’s family in eSikhaleni. It has been great having their support during this emotional time in our lives. I would like to remain in South Africa to ensure my children live in their home country, learning their roots and speaking Zulu fluently.”

She said the South African government is continuing to look into Lindani’s case.
