Kanye West took on Twitter to pay tribute to Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani who passed away on Thursday due to an “unspecified illness”.
Franca Sozzani was always so nice and sincere. You will be deeply missed.
In the year 2013, Sozzani collaborated with West for an art project for the magazine. As per Billboard reports, she also complimented the artist for his talents.
“He’s more than music. He’s not only about music,” she once said at a Dream For Future Africa Foundation event.
Franca Sozzani was a journalist and an Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Italia. She was quite popular for covering topics that most of the people preferred to sideline. During her time as a journalist, she talked about domestic violence, Black Movement, and other social issues.
West is not the only celebrity to pay tribute to late Sozzani. Other celebrities who paid their tribute to the journalist included Madonna and Paris Hilton. Madonna called Sozzani “A trailblazer and a True Rebel”.
We will miss you, Franca. May your soul rest in peace,
