US born-again rapper Kanye West still believes he has a chance of becoming the 46th president of United States.
The rapper released another campaign video and this time it was his voters who were selling his resume and showing support for their celebrity star.
The video showed young men and women from different races giving reasons as to why they were voting for Kanye in the November elections.
One of the male voters said:
"I'm voting for Kanye because I think this nation needs a strong leader with ideas, good ideas that can progress us not liberal or conservative but just like fact and Kanye is that guy.
Another female voter said:
"I'm supporting Kanye for president, as a young Christian I am proud that my vote is going towards a campaign that is faith-based and a candidate who cares about empowering the youth of America.
In the end, the rapper showed that he had the support of the older generation as a white lady also vowed to support his bid.
Briefly.co.za had earlier reported about Kanye's first campaign video in which he gave his vision for the nation.
In the clip, Kanye spoke about fulfilling "America's destiny" and how his goals included focusing on the sanctity of family and the freedom of religion.
The internet, of course, had opinions.
Some tweeps said America should have learned its lesson after electing a celebrity to the White House the first time as West, similarly to Trump, had no training in law, public policy or politics.
Others said the video showed just how out of touch the musician was with what the office of the president meant and were worried that voters will jokingly choose the artiste, which would take votes away from the truly legitimate candidates.
Many took issue with the heavy religious theme of the video, calling Kanye out for not understanding freedom of religion or the fact that the state is not supposed to favour one.
