Kanye West has revealed another one of his ideas to his fans and followers on Twitter. The “All Of The Lights” emcee took to social media to share that he wanted to create a Christian version of the popular app, TikTok, after seeing some disturbing content on the original app while watching with one of his daughters.

“A VISION JUST CAME TO ME… JESUS TOK,” he tweeted. “I WAS WATCHING TIK TOK WITH MY DAUGHTER AND AS A CHRISTIAN FATHER I WAS DISTURBED BY A LOT OF THE CONTENT, BUT I COMPLETELY LOVED THE TECHNOLOGY.”

He continued, “WE PRAY WE CAN COLLABORATE WITH TIKTOK TO MAKE A CHRISTIAN-MONITORED VERSION THAT FEELS SAFE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND THE WORLD. IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.”

“Jesus Tok” immediately began trending on Twitter. Fans began to speculate what content would be on the app. Social media user @lacedpain shared a video for what he thought would be the theme song of the app.

Twitter user @bambamboodee tweeted, “I’m deactivating my twitter and moving to Jesus Tok, see you all there!”

“Joel Olsteen gonna be dancing to Hip Hop Harry on Jesus Tok,” tweeted @treyals.

Aside from his plans to create a more age-appropriate TikTok for the youth, West has just been nominated for three Dove awards for the first time ever. The Gospel Music Association announced that his gospel album Jesus Is Born is nominated for Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year and Traditional Gospel Album of the Year. His hit single, “Follow God,” is nominated for Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year.

The 51st Annual Dove Awards is set to air Oct. 30 on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Much like this year’s BET Awards, the show will consist of pre-recorded performances and acceptance speeches.
