Kanye West has hit headlines recently because of his condition, after his wife Kim Kardashian issued a statement yesterday saying the family feel ‘powerless’ following her husband’s Twitter rants and ‘bipolar disorder’.

Concern has grown for the rapper’s mental health in recent weeks after he broke down in tears at a presidential rally, accused Kim of cheating on him with Meek Mill and called his mother-in-law Kris Jenner ‘Kris Jong-Un’ in a series of late-night tweets.

Dr. Emeka Okorocha first hit the spotlight after asking his TikTok followers to respect him in his hoodie as well as his scrubs.

In a powerful clip, to the tune of Childish Gambino’s politically-charged ‘This is America’, the doctor appears in his blue medical scrubs and then changes into a black Nike hoodie, writing: ‘If you celebrate me in my scrubs, don’t hate me in my hoodie.’  

Speaking to FEMAIL, Dr Emeka said he came up with the idea after seeing a similar video of a black lawyer being asked to be celebrated while out of his suit.

‘It shows the contrast of how people see us in society,’ he explained.  ‘I was in a group chat of doctors, and most of us are black. We were talking about it and all discussed how they when people in scrubs they’ll celebrate us, but when they see you in hoodie they fear you.

‘As we were talking I thought it was quite a good TikTok idea. Everyone seems to love me in my scrubs and everyone is clapping for the NHS, but if I wear a hoodie, as a 6ft6 black man in a affluent neighbourhood – they’ll be scared,’ he added.
