Kanye West in Uganda meets Museveni Here's a run-down

West said he and his wife were not there "to take a photograph and look like they were doing something positive", but instead to "be here and work with you". The 74-year-old President Yoweri Museveni said he and West held "fruitful discussions" about promoting tourism and arts.

There was also speculation that the Ugandan government was funding the trip under the guise of promoting Uganda as a tourism destination.

Kanye, 41, travelled to Uganda to work on his ninth record with his wife Kim Kardashian West, 37, and while he was there the Gold Digger hitmaker gifted the President of Uganda a pair of Yeezy sneakers signed by the couple.

In 2014, Museveni pushed through Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act, which would make homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment.

Since his time in the East-Central Africa country, the Chicago native met with the nation's President Yoweri K. Museveni to discuss arts and tourism, TMZ reports. "It is the true Pearl of Africa", said the President.
