Maybe he isn't distancing himself from politics after all...
NBC Chicago reports that Amara Enyia’s campaign received a $126,460 contribution from the artist – a considerable increase from his apparent $73,540 donation made last Tuesday (October 23).
The news comes just days after the rapper announced that he was turning his focus away from politics. “I am distancing myself from politics and focusing on being creative,” he tweeted, claiming he’d been “used” and disavowed any association with BLEXIT, the right wing African-American organisation founded by Candace Owens.
West joined Chance The Rapper at a campaign event for Enyia on the same day that his first donation was reported.
Elsewhere, Ye embarked on a Twitter following spree earlier this week in which he added former Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, US senator Bernie Sanders, and gun-control activist Emma González.
