Kanye West He tries to breathe new life into his Donda Academy – this time in a new, more sacred location, even though the school has nearly collapsed.
pastor Ronald Nagin of Cornerstone Christian Church told TMZ that he and Kanye have had 3 face-to-face meetings over the past month, and Yi has expressed interest in leasing some church space in Northridge, California — in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley — for Donda’s academy.
We’re told Kanye thinks CCC is an improvement from his old Donda space in Chatsworth – where Ye was moved to last year. Before that, Donda Academy was operating in Simi Valley.
As for what Ye likes about Cornerstone, Nagin says he likes the fact that it offers more space with more classrooms and sanctuary. It should be noted… If Ye pulled the trigger, he would only use part of the lands—not all of the church’s property.
As Nagin points out that this isn’t a done deal yet, the wheels are in motion… because we’re told Cornerstone’s attorney is drafting a lease for Ye now.
It’s not an interesting one-way street either… Nageen says the church considers Donda Academy to be a good fit for them too. We’re told that Kanye’s priority is to provide a quality education in a Christian environment, which is right down a church alley, as Cornerstone has had several schools operate out of the church in the past.
Of course, the biggest problem – Kanye lost his students and teachers, who recently fled to other programs. If he succeeds in securing the new space, he will have to recruit a lot of new students and convince the old ones to come back.
If you were wondering if Kanye’s Recent bigoted and anti-Semitic comments You’ll be a hindrance, the answer is no – Nagin tells us he considers Yi a good guy and friend. He even swung by this week for service, away from negotiations over potential rental space.
It’s interesting… The word is, Donda Academy was a pretty simple process Sometimes you open, sometimes not Amid Ye’s erratic behavior – so, being uprooted again wouldn’t be as strange as it seemed from the outside.
