Fan eyes collaboration with Kanye West after duet

  • Print

A fan who duetted with Kanye West at his Connecticut concert hopes to work with the star.

Mike Ahern had been celebrating his 18th birthday at the rapper's gig in Uncasville, on Friday night (02.21.14) when Kanye prompted security guards to hand him the microphone to sing the last verse of 'Bound 2'.

While the young fan described the experience as "nerve-wracking" he hopes to receive a call from Kanye for a collaboration.

Mike told Toofab.com:"I got to sing the end of the song, which was really cool. You get lost in the moment, but you know all the words,

"If I could work for Kanye in any business or field, that would be incredible."

Mike insists he has no plans to sell the treasured microphone although other concert goers have been offering him cash in a desperate bid to get hold of the object, which will be displayed in his home.

He explained: "Maybe [I'd sell] if someone said, 'I'll give you $100 million' ... but realistically, I'm not interested in selling it."

Meanwhile, Kanye stepped out with his fiancee Kim Kardashian over the weekend, to celebrate after he successfully wrapped the American leg of his 'Yeezus' tour.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star cheered on the 36-year-old rapper following his performance at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York.
