DJ Cuppy in a tweet on Sunday, January 16 took a swipe at Kanye West that he is not the richest black man. The tweet follows claims the American rapper made in an interview told Hollywood Unlock that he is the richest blackman.
Kanye West has been in the news over a bitter encounter with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. The ‘No Child Left Behind‘ rapper has alleged that he was prevented from seeing his daughter, Chicago on his sixth birthday. According to him, Kim’s security prevented him, “the richest blackman and North’s father” from getting into the house.
He said: “My daughter wanted me to go inside. I was like, I am the richest blackman and North’s father, right, and the security was able to stop me from going into the room with my daughter.”
DJ Cuppy in a tweet argued that Kanye West is not the richest black man but instead, his godfather, Aliko Dangote from Nigerian is the current richest black man in the world.
“Random, I know… I am a HUGE @KanyeWest fan However with ALL due respect, I feel the need to remind him that he is not the “richest blackman” -it is in fact my Godfather @AlikoDangote. Just clearing the air with #Facts ”
