NOT EVEN a five-hour wait disappointed Kanye West’s diehard fans.

On Saturday night the Dome in Northgate was the venue for the winter wonderland spectacle which saw 6 000 Kanye groupies experience an epic show.

According to the twitterverse, the Power rapper received some mixed reactions to his concert with one @RawFaerieB hashtagging it as the worst concert ever.

But she appears to be the only person who thought so.

Most tweets on the concert were favourable to the 18-time Grammy winner.

Most had nothing but praise for the US artist, calling his concert a crazy and magical experience.

@Djoz SA tweeted that it was one of the best performances he had ever seen: “Kanye West took us on a journey. Even the visuals went well with the theme of the songs”.

Although some people were not happy about the five-hour wait, they still agreed that the concert was “off the chains” and the experience had “reset the bar”.

Socialite Eda Rose tweeted that the concert was interesting. “He is definitely a creative, an artist – an emotional bag! But making us wait 5 hours?! Not ayoba!” she added.

Another tweeter, @mstendy felt the night was amazing and worth the five-hour wait.

Garrick Williams tweeted that Kanye West taught him to just smile and keep walking.

Locals AKA, Magesh, Zwai Bala, HHP, Zakwe and others entertained the crowd while they waited for West.
