Kanye West to release Jesus is King film, no longer making secular music

by Tola Mbakwe

After attending a listening party for his new album Jesus Is King on Sunday, people in the music industry have been tweeting about the upcoming film and his new direction in music.


IMAX announced it will release the film exclusively in IMAX theatres around the world on 25 October.

Meanwhile, West's fans are getting impatient as the release date for the album keeps getting postponed.

West's wife, Kim Kardashian-West, originally announced the Christian-themed album will be released on 27 September, and then changed the date to 29 September.

On 30 September, still with no sign of the album, fans took to Twitter complaining about the delay and questioning if the album even exists.


The anticipation got #JesusIsKing trending on Twitter with some Christians bashing the rapper for using Christianity to draw attention to himself and boost him album sales.

 However, some people are backing West. 

If West were to release the album, it would be his first since Ye, which arrived in June last year.

In September the controversial rapper announced that he was releasing an album titled Yandhi later in the month, however it was postponed and then abandoned.
