Kanye West announces plans to run for president in 2024 and might change his name to 'Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West'

American rapper, Kanye West has announced his plans to run for president in 2024 while stating that he might change his name to 'Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West'

The 42-year-old father of four disclosed this while speaking at the Fast Company’s Innovation Festival.

Kanye who was joined on stage by his Yeezy collaborator Steven Smith started by saying"

“When people say it’s crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y’all understand exactly what it is,” he said. “It will be on the license plate.”

He then started another conversation on his plan to run for president. “When I run for president in 2024 —” West said, to laughter from the audience. “What y’all laughing at?”

West said that if he were elected president, he would “create so many jobs.”

“I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk,” he said. “What they’re saying is Kanye’s crazy — one and three African Americans are in jail and all the celebrities are in jail also because they can’t say nothing because they’re so scared.”

West also said he believes African American voters are treated as a “demographic” alone, something he said he has experienced as an African American fashion designer.

“As black designers out of America, you can’t have an opinion,” he said. “You can only be the consumer… you can only be a demographic.”

“And that a boardroom says ‘this is the black demographic…This is who you’re supposed to vote on,” he continued. “This is what you’re supposed to buy. This is your Popeye’s chicken sandwich you’re supposed to eat on. I have seen the boardroom and back. And it’s completely the concept of a demographic.”

Man finds £100,000 gold haul while looking for his mate’s wedding ring with a metal detector

A metal detectorist who was asked to look for his friend’s lost wedding ring ended up going home £100,000 richer when his equipment found a pot of gold.

Paul Raynard, 44, and best friend Michael Gwynne, 52, were on a short holiday when they were asked to help look for a wedding ring a farmer had lost working.

The pair began their search but were starting to lose hope when they only dug up a horseshoe and a 50p coin. But after an hour-and-a-half trawling the vast land, they struck gold with what experts say could be the biggest haul ever found in Ireland and worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Paul "broke down in tears" when he and Michael stumbled across their very own pot of gold on October 29. They found a cluster of 84 coins dating back to the 1500s in a field near Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. One of the hoard – an ultra-rare Henry VIII coin – is estimated to be worth £5,000 on its own, experts have told Paul. He added other coins – such as one dated 1546, when the famed boy king Edward VI reigned – could be worth up to £3,000.

Speaking of the moment he found the treasure, Paul, from Keighley, Yorkshire, said: "I jumped up and down and ran down the field in tears to find Michael. It’s something I have dreamed of finding since I was a kid. It was an amazing feeling. It’s like checking your lottery numbers and realising you’ve hit the jackpot.

"I saw one or two coins at first but had no idea of the size of the hoard to begin with. I went to fetch Michael who was across the field so we could share the moment together. I was shaking, I still can’t believe it now."

Video footage of the moment Paul and Michael dig up the underground treasure shows them pulling one muddy coin after another from beneath the soil.

The coins have been sent to Ulster Museum for official identification and valuation by a team of experts. It will take several months for the 84 coins to be valued in full but Paul said other experts told him the whole hoard could be worth more than £100,000.

Paul said he and his business partner, Michael, usually study old maps looking out for signs of ancient settlements or battlegrounds where hoards may be buried.

He said: "We had just come back from a busy business trip to China and Michael said he knew of a nice little place we could go to in Ireland for us to take our detectors. But we only went to that field to try to find his mate’s wedding ring. We didn’t find the ring and had only been there a couple of hours when we found the coins. I dug a small hole and there they were. I just could not believe it."

Paul has been interested in metal detecting since aged seven when his parents bought him a treasure island book as a present.

He took his hobby seriously at the age of 35 and bought a £600 metal detector, capable of picking up gold and silver items buried up to 4ft below ground.

The coins are Paul’s most significant find and he has described it as a "once in a lifetime" discovery, Metro UK reports. Their value will be split equally between Paul and the landowner if they choose to sell the coins on for cash, following the completion of the valuation process.

We shall meet in court - Falana tells DSS for allegedly refusing to release Sowore the second time

Senior Advocate Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana has threatened to drag the Department of State Services (DSS) to court for allegedly refusing to release Omoyele Sowore who has reportedly met his bail conditions.

In a statement released on Thursday November 7, Falana disclosed that this is the second time the security agency will be refusing to release the convener of the #RevolutionNow Movement even though the federal high court in Abuja has ordered his release alongside Olawale Adebayo a.k.a Mandate.

“On 8th August 2019, the Honourable Justice Taiwo Taiwo granted the application of the State Security Service to detain Mr. Omoyele Sowore for 45 days,” he said.

“Upon the expiration of the 45-day detention period the court granted Mr. Sowore bail on September 24, 2019. He met the bail conditions but the State Security Service refused to release him from custody.

“Mr. Sowore and Mandate Bakare were subsequently charged with treasonable felony, cyber stalking and money laundering on September 30, 2019. The trial judge, the Honourable Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu admitted the defendants to bail under very stringent conditions. Upon meeting the bail conditions Justice Ojukwu directed the State Security Service to release the defendants from detention.

“But in utter contempt of the orders of Justice Ojukwu the State Security Service has refused to release Messrs Sowore and Bakare from custody.

“Since the State Security Service is not above the law of the land we shall embark on appropriate legal measures to ensure compliance with the court orders.”
