Kanye West has left fans confused after footage emerged of his recent live performance at a wedding in Italy.
On Saturday (Oct 16) clips circulated on social media of Kanye's live performances at the Venice wedding of Tiffany & Co. executive, Alexandre Arnault and D’Estree founder, Geraldine Guyot.

The reception party saw a star-studded list of guests, which included Pharrell Williams, Questlove, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
The 'Power' rapper was spotted wearing a black Balenciaga-designed mask which looks similar to the moniker worn by Squid Game‘s 'Front Man'.
As the second wedding reception between Arnault and Guiotte, West performed several crowd favorites such as “Flashing Lights” and “Runaway.”
Many fan forum pages, such as KanyeMedia_ shared footage of the event, where you can see the Kanye reeling off vocals and rapping to his tracks.
The 44-year-old rapper seemed bothered by the mask while he was performing, nudging it around. But, that was not the main talking point from the clips.

Instead, fans were focussed on Kanye's attire and his singing. After media personality DJ Akademiks shared a video of Ye's performance, fans immediately took to the comment section to roast the rapper.
One fan wrote: "Man thinks he’s front man🤣" another added: "Did bro forget his own lyrics?" while a third fan wrote: "Yikes 🤭that’s really bad".
Underneath the post, fans continued to troll Kanye's mask blocking his vocals, writing: "Lol can’t even perform , don’t sound like he can speak".
