As Kanye West continues to record his Yandhi album in Uganda after arriving the country some days ago, he and his wife Kim Kardashian-West paid a courtesy visit to the country’s leader, President Yoweri Museveni at State House.
The president who owns a large livestock farm reportedly donated 10 cows and a copy of his book ‘Sowing the Mustard Seed’ to the couple. Kanye West also donated a pair of Yeezy boost sneakers to the President.
The president cracked a joke with the singer as he was quoted telling him, “I am also a rapper. If you want help on your album, I am always here to help”.
The president tweeted alongside photos of them with a quote:
I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and @KimKardashian to Uganda. I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts. I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa.
The celebrity couple arrived in Entebbe on Friday and were flown by Helicopter to Murchison Falls National Park to the north west of the country where they are staying at the Chobe Lodge for their working holiday.
The visit is considered important for Uganda’s tourism sector which has recently suffered from political turbulence.
