Kanye West and his mother, Donda West
Twitter

Kanye West posted on Twitter a throwback photo of himself and his mother, Donda West, to celebrate what would have been her 67th birthday.

Kanye's mother died almost eight years ago after suffering complications from a surgery, and she played a huge role in his life. Not only was Donda an educator, but she was also an author.

It's obvious that Kanye has been sharing memories of his mother with his daughter, Nori, saying she was the one asking about her late grandmother.

Having personally met Donda on several occasions, I think it’s sad that Kanye West's children won't have the chance to meet their grandmother; she was an amazing woman.
