Kanye West, renowned American rapper, says he has converted to Christianity, after prolonged speculations about his faith.
The 42-year-old musician had left most of his fans in the dark about his religious life for sometimes now, with the issue becoming a subject of heated controversies among his followers.
This is because he has been holding his Sunday Service worship services since the beginning of this year.
But staging a surprise listening party of ‘Jesus is King’, his much anticipated forthcoming album, at Howard University, Washington D.C, over the weekend, West announced he has become a Christian.
“I want to let you know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon. We are here to spread the gospel,” TMZ quoted him as saying while addressing the crowd who had gathered to listen to him.
“Excuse me if I mispronounce anything. I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.”
His statement comes at about the same time when Kim Kardashian-West, his wife; and North, Saint and Chicago; his children, were baptized in Armenia.

Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip. So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church. This church was built in 303 AD.📷 @jackie_nickersonAdvertisement
As for the new album ‘Jesus Is King’, West still hasn’t confirmed when it will be released, since it was supposed to be out on September 27.
There are, however, reports that the album is now tentatively slated for an October 25 release.
