Kanye West Talks Spirituality, Mental Health, Jay and Drake With Zane Lowe

Ye is ‘no longer a slave’.



Prior to the release of his highly anticipated album, the frustratingly over-delayed Jesus Is King, Kanye West embarked on a tour to amplify his first gospel album. One of the promotional stops was a sit down with Zane Lowe, which took place on Thursday, October 24th on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Love him or hate him, there’s no shred of doubt that Kanye West is possibly the most intriguing character in this generation’s Pop culture.

This interview offered an unfettered platform for him to engage Zane on the atelier of his ideas, many which have been as interesting as they have been alienating.

He spoke frankly on a sprawling range of topics, from music to his controversial political aberrations. Here are some of the hottest highlights from the interview


Kanye: I love all of these people but you gotta know there’s a lineage of Jay to Ye to Drake. This person is your idol, then you get to know em, then you be friends, then you turn to frenemies, then you turn to enemies, and then you gotta bring back the positive energy.


But that’s the lineage of rap kings and inspirers, because Jay was my BIGGEST inspiration.

By the time I got to New York and we had the throwbacks, Big Boi had throwbacks first, but there was a little stand at Lenox and I’d be going down there doing beats with Jermaine Dupri and I’d pull up with my throwback and Jay is be like ‘man that’s nice’ then I pull up the next day with another throwback, and then day four they say, ‘what, you stay in Atlanta?’


Kanye: Now that I’m in service to Christ my job is to spread the gospel. I’m no longer a slave I’m a son now, a son of God and I’m free, but this shows you that God is hilarious. Liberals love art and now I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time.

It’s just a fact. Right? So to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke on all liberals like nooooo not Kanye! But those liberals never, we are the same human beings, it’s not man vs machine, man IS the machine. We are God’s imperfect creation because we perish.


Kanye: There was times where I was asking people to fast during the album. This is gonna be radical what I’m about to say we can look at it in the edit. There were times I was asking people to not have premarital sex while they were working on the album.

I know that’s one where the Shade Room will be like ‘what you mean not have premarital sex!?’ but seriously there’s times I went to people that were working on other projects and said could you just work and focus on this? I mean it’s known when people pray together, families that pray together stay together. When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.
