"I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda's tourism and the arts", he said.

Ugandan pop star turned opposition MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has hit out at Kanye West for meeting President Yoweri Museveni.

"Missing my babies! P.S. mom shammers it's not a pacifier, he's eating candy", the 37-year-old wrote on Instagram along with the picture of herself holding her nine-month-old daughter Chicago while holding hands with Saint.

Kanye West has been under intense scrutiny these past few days because of his recent outburst in which he called for the abolition of the Thirteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which abolishes slavery in the country.

"If you knew how many people are following that Kanye, who, must now begin to ask questions about Uganda, who must be curious, who must want to know what attracted him to Uganda".

Prior to West's visit to Uganda, he went to the White House to have lunch with Trump and be present for the Music Modernization Act.

TUKO.co.ke understands Kanye together with fellow musician Big Sean traveled to Uganda to shoot a music video. "One time, he was the musical guest, but we heard he wanted to do a sketch, so we pitched him a sketch where he would interrupt different award show speeches saying they had made a mistake and he should have won".

Good haul all round, I'd say. "I just channeled it", West replied. That hadn't happened yet.

Kanye had earlier told TMZ that he felt a need to connect with his roots in Africa, and the need to showcase that in his yet to be released album.
