Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian also met with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
The President said he and the rapper held “fruitful discussions” about promoting tourism and arts.
President Museveni today met US music star Kanye West aka YE and his wife, Kim Kardashian, at State House Entebbe. The head of state’s discussion with the American entertainment stars focused on supporting Uganda’s tourism and the arts.
Kanye gifted President Museveni—a man who is accused internationally of overseeing the torture and unjust imprisonment of musician and opposition politician Bobi Wine—a pair of white sneakers.
Museveni has called the reports of torture agonists Bobiwine “fake news”
Naturally, given his current embracement of Donald Trump and, in association, far right politics, many people aren’t happy with
Kanye visiting Uganda (or anywhere on the African continent) and meeting with Museveni.
the rapper will be in Uganda for a week long visit where he is expected to record a video about uganda’s tourism potential and this is likely to woe more visitors to come to Uganda.
