Kanye West has revealed his latest business venture is a Christian school for children, with North and Saint West as well as Penelope Disick appearing in his promo video.
The rapper, 43, announced he is launching Yeezy Christian Academy for children, tweeting the video and adding: ‘Dear future I still believe in you’.
Kanye had announced his plans for the academy in September, revealing that the school will be based on five ‘founding pillars’ which are ‘faith, music, communication, collaboration, and creativity’.
He added at the time that ‘students will learn how to create and sing’ and they will ‘learn how to communicate in the 21st century’.
The promo video sees the children wearing blue ‘YCA’ T-shirts as they tell the camera: ‘Dear Future, I still believe in you. We still believe in you. We believe in our families.
‘In our future, we will heal. Our future has homes for everyone. Our future has food for everyone.
‘Our future has love. Jesus loves everyone. Let’s lead with love! Our future is waiting on us!’
The clip is filmed inside a blue room with chalk writing on the walls as well as outdoors as the children run around and play.
While Kanye has shared his promotional video, little is known about the running of the academy and whether it is a certified educational programme.
Similarly, the costs and the location of the school has yet to be revealed, as well as whether or not it will be open to the public.
Page Six reports that a press release for the academy calls it Kanye’s ‘latest initiative for education’, though more details are as yet unknown.
Kanye taking on education comes after he made a bid for office in the US presidential election on November 3.
Last week, he shared an open letter in the New York Times echoing the message of the school and writing: ‘Dear Future, I still believe in you. We still believe in you.’
He continued: ‘Our future will provide expecting families with a safe and secure plan that values every stage of life. Our future will provide a justice system that treats everyone equally regardless of their socioeconomic status.’
