Desi Twitter Had A Field Day As Rapper Kanye West Officially Changed His Name To ‘Ye’

Posted on

We all must have filled some forms in life in which there are separate rows for first name, middle name if any and last name which is the surname of the person and this is done specifically for the purpose of noting down a person’s details in a proper manner. It is a common perception that almost every person has a first name and a last name at least but the American rapper Kanye West chose to change his name and he struck off his last name completely.

Yes, you read it right! Kanye West has changed his name and now he will be known as “Ye” with no last name as he dropped his surname West. The rapper filed an application regarding name change in August and on Monday, Judge Michelle Williams granted him the permission to change his name in the California courthouse.

Kanye West wanted to change his name for a long time which is understandable from the tweet that he made in 2018.

He wrote,

“The being formally known as Kanye West  

I am YE”

However, Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian West has not dropped the West surname and four kids of the couple – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm will also use the surname West.

Soon desi Twitter users also started expressing their opinion on this and most of them chose to show their funny side by posting memes and jokes as “Ye” is a commonly used word in the Hindi language.

Here are some selected reactions:











Kanye, Ye kyun kiya?
