Nothing is more beautiful than to see a mother getting all the appreciation she deserves for the success of her children. Sure, hard work is a driving force for anything one wants to achieve. But more often than not, it is the love and support of a mother that drives someone to succeed. The same is the case with the success and fame of Kanye West, who owes it all to his mother, Donda West. So today, let us take a look at the beautiful mother and human being, Donda West.

The giant looks in the mirror and sees nothing,” says Donda when conversing with her beloved son during one scene in the first Act of jeen-yuhs. The docuseries has been in the making for the past 21 years, and captures the rise of Kanye West as one of the biggest music artists on the planet. Hence, it comes as no surprise that his other Donda is an integral part of the series.

In a rather beautiful and emotional scene, we see Donda with a big bright smile, comparing Kanye to a giant. Kanye, like all of us, sat there confused and not understanding what that little metaphorical reference meant. “Everybody else sees the giant,” explains Donda, but the giant never sees his own self or else it will consume him. She advised him to never get caught up with his own reflection.

This brief moment in the first episode of the series is truly heartwarming and subtly tells us the influence Donda had on Ye. It also shows us why the death of Kanye’s mother Donda West had such an impact on him and his being.
