and in fact regards him as a friend, so it is likely that he will obtain his wish to lease the church site for the Academy.
According to TMZPastor Nagin has said that he and Kanye have met several times over the past month to discuss the possibility of using the church space for their academy…
The new location will be in Northridge, San Fernando Valley.
This comes after Donda Academy failed last year after moving from Simi Valley to Chatsworth.

Those who were part of the academy left to attend other programs.
