BBC is reporting that Kanye West met with the President of Uganda during a visit to the East African nation and gave him a pair of white Yeezy sneakers.
The 74-year-old president, Yoweri Museveni, said he and the American rapper held “fruitful discussions” about promoting tourism and arts. “I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda,” Mr Museveni tweeted about the visit.
This comes days after West revealed that he traveled to Uganda with his family for a vacation and an opportunity to make new music influenced by new sounds.
And to honour their visit, the president gave both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian names to mark the occasion. “Kanyesigye” for Kanye, which means “I trust” and “Kemigisha” for Kim, which means “the one with blessings from God” in the local language.
