US rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West has met with Uganda’s president during a visit to the east African nation.
President Yoweri Museveni says he and the American rapper held “fruitful discussions” about promoting tourism and arts. Ye and his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, have been vacationing in a national park in Uganda. He is said to be recording music in a tent.
Uganda’s presidency released photos of a hoodie-wearing West meeting Museveni at the State House on Monday and exchanging gifts. Excited tourism officials see the visit as an endorsement of the country’s tourism potential.
Ye arrived in the country, with his family, on Friday and went to a luxury resort close to the River Nile. This meeting, comes on the heels of Ye’s meeting in the Oval with President Donald Trump. A fortnight ago, Ye told celebrity news website TMZ that he wanted to travel to “what is known as Africa” to finish his latest album, Yandhi.
