Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Monday welcomed visiting American rap star Ye – formerly known as Kanye West – to Uganda, where he is expected to record a music video.
Museveni hosted Ye and his wife Kim Kardashian at the State House in Kampala, where he held discussion with them “on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts.”

During the visit, Ye and his wife Kim gifted Museveni with a pair of his Yeezy branded sneakers.
The couple was accompanied to Uganda by their five-year-old daughter North West.
They are said to be based at the Chobe Lodge at the Murchison National Park, located in northern Uganda.
Reports indicate that the park is under lockdown and security remains very high.
