Yes indeed, one of the most divisive and provocative figures in pop culture, the one and only Kanye West is coming to Manila to perform at the Paradise International Music Festival to be held at Aseana City, Parañaque on April 9, 2016.


Whether his messianic stature is bona fide or self-professed, it’s difficult to argue that Kanye West has had an influence like few before him.  A complete visionary, he’s shifted the course of pop culture time and time again, first as a producer and then as a rapper and more recently as a father and fashion mogul. The Grammy Award-winning musician is behind hit songs “No Church In The Wild,” “POWER,” and “Stronger.”


The music festival’s official Facebook page dropped the news  that Yeezy would be performing to his Filipino fans for the first time ever but held off giving up too much more information at this point:
