Kanye West‘s fans are evidently very faithful. They have been following his rap career, social life and legal life since he debuted in the rap scene. In an effort to support the music mogul, a group of unknown fans have created a new religious following called Yeezianity. A few weeks ago, the website http://www.yeezianity.com was launched to promote and celebrate the lifestyle of West and soon people were joining the cause.
The only entrance requirement for this new religion is to take a photo of yourself with a sign saying ‘I believe in Yeezus’ and post it to social media. Then, as it states, you are a Ye’ciple.
Just a few short weeks later, the first video has been released from the founders of Yeezianity. The description of the minute-long YouTube clip states: “We created this video because we want to show the world the good message Kanye West has to share instead of the few outlandish statements the media overemphasizes.”
Adding a few clips of various interviews from BBC Radio 1, SiriusXM and Kris Jenner’s talk show, the video puts West in a powerful role. “I am so frustrated… I’ve got so much I want to give,” one clip states. “I’m going to bring positivity to the world,” another relays.
The founders of the group are anonymous but have been publicizing the group with a Twitter account, @Yeezianity. So far, the only tweets are pictures of people with their ‘I believe in Yeezus’ signs.
