Kanye West has this attitude where he declares himself to be the "next" whatever that comes to mind. He has compared himself to numerous people in his interviews such as Steve Jobs and Beethoven. Hilariously, Kanye has even declared himself being 'better' then these legends.
In a recent report that was released by "The Daily Currant" an online news site that releases satirical reports, released a so-called 'fake' interview of Kanye West saying he is the next Nelson Mandela:
"Mandela was working in South Africa, which has, like what, six people? I started my magic here in the USA and then I took my business global" and "I liberate minds with my music. That's more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever."
It may have been a little too rash of the singer and many would understand that since the news did come from a well known satirical news paper that it was all fake, there were many who actually believed it. These fans took to twitter posting their reactions on the 'fake' interview of Kanye.

It may seem like Kanye would do such a thing, which is why many believed the fake interview in the first place. It was a false report and the "Bound 2" singer has yet to give his reaction on the matter.
Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest leaders in the 21st century, died peacefully in the care of his family at the age of 95. Celebrities and a number of people showed their respect for the leader.

Next time people should be a little aware as to where they get their news from. Kanye may have anger management and egocentric issue but maybe, just maybe, he knows a little thing about "respecting" people like Nelson Mandela to actually think he could be a great leader like Mandela.
