The mercurial Kanye West anticipates traveling to Moscow later this year, according to Billboard, a trip that will see him perform a Sunday Service performance and meet with President Vladimir Putin.
Ameer Sudan, West’s strategic adviser, said Billboard that West plans to visit Moscow in the spring or summer and “will spend a lot of time there” and wants to make the country his “second home.”
West is headed to Russia while working on new business deals with Aras Agalarov, the Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire businessman with ties to Donald Trump, and Agalarov’s musician son Emin, the music outlet said, citing West adviser Ameer Sudan.
West, who legally changed his name to Ye in October, is working on unspecified deals with the Agalarovs, which Sudan says will boost the rapper’s net worth by more than $10 billion.Forbes He estimates his current net worth to be $1.8 billion and he also plans to work with Emin Agalarov on new music.
It’s unclear what West wants to meet with Putin about, and Sudan said the Yeezy CEO plans to invite the Russian president to a performance by his Sunday Service choir as a special guest.
