Kanye West Performed at Time 100 with a Crowd of Models Posing as African Warriors

Kanye West hit the stage at the annual Time 100 Gala. The rapper was on the cover of this year’s issue heralding him as a “Titan.” After ‘Ye, wearing Haider Ackermann, and Kim Kardashian, wearing Sophie Allet, were pranked by the hilarious Amy Schumer, ‘Ye hit the stage flanked by male models posing as Xhosa warriors.

The model spread white mud over their bodies and wore khaki pants. Seems ‘Ye was trying to give a commentary on manhood or perhaps African manhood. The Xhosa ethnic group of South Africa perform traditional circumcision ceremonies to introduce young boys into manhood.

Check out ‘Ye’s performance below.
