US rapper Kanye West has officially changed his name to Ye Cockwomble.
West, who opens Abertillery Catholic Mothers’ Union Jumble Sale next month, changed his name by deed poll yesterday.
A spokesman for the superstar told WalesOnCraic:
“Kanye has asked not to be questioned on his new choice of name. We think he’s following in the footsteps of the artist formerly known as Prince except that Prince had some musical talent and wasn’t a massive bellend. Kanye went down to Acme Solicitors Ltd yesterday morning and the man there said that he could change his name to whatever he wanted. Kanye was stuck for a while so the kind chap there suggested Ye Cockwomble. Kanye loved the idea so that’s what he’s going to be called from now on.”
Kanye will be visiting Wales next month when he tours the South Wales leisure centres. He’ll be performing a live set at Barry Leisure Centre in November, next to the vending machine.
