Cape Town – Controversial rapper Kanye West has buckled down on his support for U.S. leader Donald Trump during his latest Sunday Service event in Utah.

The father of four explained during the proceedings, saying: "That's the Republican Party that freed the slaves," in Salt Lake City. 

This references the fact that Republican President Abraham Lincoln was in office when slavery in the United States ended.

He went on: "We got a right to our opinions, right?" 

He then said: "You black, so you can't like Trump? I ain't never made a decision only based on my colour. That's a form of slavery, mental slavery."  

New York radio station, Hot 97, posted a video of the moment on their Twitter.
