Russian state media claims Kanye West is in Moscow

Russian state media claimed on Sunday (30) that American rapper and producer Kanye West is visiting Moscow, but the CNN have not been able to independently verify whether it is actually there.

West, who now goes by Ye, arrived in Moscow on a private visit, according to the team at Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy’s brand, state media TASS reported. Rubchinskiy is the head of design at rapper Yeezy’s fashion brand.

West himself allegedly posted on Russian social media site VK on Sunday saying, “Hello Moscow,” according to state media RIA Novosti. However, his VK account has not been verified.

The visit – if true – would make West the first major American celebrity to visit Moscow since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began in February 2022.

A CNN reached out to West’s manager for comment.

Several videos have emerged in Russian media purporting to show West and his security guards in Moscow, but he is not clearly identifiable in the footage.

Music producer Yana Rudkovskaya also posted a video that allegedly shows West’s back as he enters a room followed by security.

She said: “According to my information, tomorrow he and the team will go to see the Luzhniki (stadium).”

The music producer added that she “hopes” that one day he will perform there, but nothing has been confirmed.

The Luzhniki Stadium told Russian state media that there was no information about a Kanye West concert scheduled to take place in the capital.

“The information that Kanye West may hold his concert in Moscow is exaggerated and false, Eduard Ratnikov, general director of the TCI (Talent Concert International) agency, told TASS,” the media outlet reported.
