Kanye West has been comparing himself to some of the world’s most famous visionaries lately. He has compared himself to Michelangelo and Steve Jobs amongst many others.

That led to the The Daily Currant running a fake interview with Kanye West stating that he thinks he is “the next Nelson Mandela.” Like The Onion, The Currant is satire and identifies itself as “The Global Satirical Newspaper of Record.”

Still, some people don’t get that it isn’t real and took it seriously. That led to West issuing a statement on Twitter trying to show respect to the Mandela family and denouncing the fake stories.
