For all those who love Kanye like Kanye loves Kanye
A new dating site aimed at Kanye West fanatics looks set to launch, helping West’s fans find fellow Yeezy Stans near them.
The site is called Yeezy Dating and is due to launch in late March/early April. Those interested can sign up via email for “early access” to the service.
The creators describe it as “a dating site for fans of the genius Mr West”, warning: “Taylor Swift fans are banned from this website”.
Speaking to NME, the man behind the venture, Harry Dry, explained that users will be “matched off location” and will also be able to select their favourite Kanye albums and songs as a way of attracting like-minded fans.
“This isn’t Tinder,” Dry said. “This isn’t about ‘Netflix and chill’. I think Kanye fans are a good fit. We’re bringing the dreamers together!”
Asked about whether the site could lead to any potential legal trouble with West, Dry replied: “Look, this site which I’m building comes from a place of love and admiration. Kanye West is my hero. He’s one of the reasons why I get out of bed each morning and try to make a difference. What I’m building is a celebration of Kanye.”
