(AllHipHop News) Kanye West has paid a touching tribute to Italian Vogue Editor Franca Sozzani following her death on Thursday (December 22).
The beloved journalist died at 66 after battling a year-long illness, and following the news of her passing, the rapper took to Twitter to share his condolences.
“Franca Sozzani was always so nice and sincere,” West wrote beside a black and white photograph of the editor. “You will be deeply missed.”
Sozzani and West met at the Dream For Future Africa Foundation event in Beverly Hills, California in 2013, when they discussed plans for a joint venture.
“We just (figured) out a new project for next year,” she told E! News at the time. “It’s about Africa, art and music. He’s more than music. He’s not only about music.”
