Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian who are in Uganda for some projects, today met with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni at the State House.
Yoweri Museveni, who owns a large livestock farm, reportedly donated 10 cows and a copy of his book “Sowing the Mustard Seed” to the couple. In return, Kanye West gave a pair of his Yeezy boost sneakers to the President.
During the visit, the president cracked a joke with the singer, telling him:
I am also a rapper. If you want help on your album, I am always here to help.
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. pic.twitter.com/BO0iD0sFCP
