So, Kanye West officially changed his name to ‘Ye’. Ye-ah, it somehow feels worse when Phoebe changed her name to Princess Consuela Bananahammock. From ‘Kanye Omari West’ to just ‘Ye’…boy, it’s gonna take a while for fans to get the hang of it.

Anyway, according to USA Today, the rapper had filed a petition to change his name back in August, citing “personal reasons”. In fact, ‘Ye’ has been Kanye’s longstanding nickname which he also used in his 2012 hit song ‘Clique’.
However, desi people online found a grand opportunity to crack the choicest of puns…because ‘ye’ happens to be a part of several hit Hindi songs – ‘Ye’ ladka haye allah kaisa hai deewana, ‘Ye’ kya huya kaise huya, ‘Ye’ dooriyaan…you get the drift!
Lagta hain Ye Kanye West ab South jaane wala hain!!
Ye Ye kya naam hain? #KanyeWest
