A few months ago, we heard reports that American rapper, Kanye Omari West, was thinking about legally changing his name.
It seems that the billionaire rapper went ahead with his decision as he has officially now changed his name to ‘Ye’. The name change was finally made official after a court agreed with him and signed his name change petition.
The rapper had already been going by the name ‘Ye’ as a moniker to his name ‘Kanye’ for some years now before he decided to make it his actual name. Ye took to Instagram to announce the new name to his 8.8 million followers on Monday. The rapper posted a picture of the back of his head with a currency symbol for the Chinese Yuan.
Ye is now the second known entertainer to change his name after American pop singer, Prince, change his name to a symbol in the late 90s.
