Controversial American rapper Kanye West has made headlines by taking down his Instagram account following his recent public statements about legally changing his name to Ye.

The rapper’s social media page, which had 20 million followers, is no longer seen.

This comes just after the 46-year-old star ranted on the platform about people still trying to “force” him to use his old name.

His name change was officially approved by a Los Angeles judge in October last year.
