Introduced by his wife Kim Kardashian, West, 37, debuted his new song 'All Day' at London's O2 Arena on February 25.
After the show, Richie who presented British Single to Mark Ronson at the event slammed the hip-hop star for using N-word while Gallagher just didn't like the rap star's performance in general.
"Am I fan of the N-word?" Not coming from the 1960s and '70s. Whereas the new world has embraced it. I don't think it's Ok for a black man to use the N-word. I don't like it - and I am a black man. I don't think it should be said and become normal... Kanye is giving us the generation shock value. How he carries on for the next 10 years, we will see," Richie said.
Meanwhile, Gallagher reached out to the rapper through Twitter "@kanyewest... And you're a million miles away from College Dropout. That's artistry. LG x."
