Kanye West - Kanye West storms off stage at gig

Kanye West stormed off the stage at his gig in Florida.

The 36-year-old rapper was just a few seconds into the third song of his performance at the Tampa Forum in Tampa on Saturday night (30.12.13) when he suddenly demanded the concert be stopped because he was not happy with the lighting and sound.

According to The Tampa Tribune newspaper, the 'All of the Lights' hitmaker reportedly said he wanted the lights to be turned down ''now'' and said a woman called Laura had forgotten to give him a ''deep voice'' effect on his microphone.

Kanye is also said to have complained that the image of him on the venue's big screen was in colour when it was supposed to be showing him off to the 7,000 concert goers in monochrome.

However, the rapper eventually returned to the stage and continued his 'Yeezus' tour with a crowd-pleasing performance of 'Send It Up' before comparing himself to the likes of Nelson Mandela, Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs in defence against his ''haters'', according to several attendees.

He is said to have name-dropped the trio because they also had plenty of detractors during the height of their success.
