US rapper Ye – previously known as Kanye West – has met Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, and has autographed a pair of his branded sneakers for him.
Yoweri Museveni tweeted Ye gave him a pair of his branded sneakers when they met at State House.
“I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda,” Mr Museveni tweeted.

And what did they talk about?
“I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts,” the president said.
The controversial rapper arrived in Uganda along with his wife, Kim Kardarshian West and their daughter North West.
A photo and video of a rapping Kanye wrapped in the Ugandan flag has since been widely shared across social media.
