Kanye West changes name to Ye after Court permission

Popular singer Kanye West will now be only known as Ye after he was given Court permission to change his name and surname.

Last August, the 44-year old artist had made the request due to “personal reasons”, with the Los Angeles Superior Court now accepting his request.

West had already used the name Ye, a short version for Kanye, as his nickname and as his album title in 2018. The singer is mostly known for songs such as ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Stronger’.
