Kim and Kanye, who are vacationing in Uganda, met with President Museveni to discuss promoting the country's tourism and arts
Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian-West seem to have done a good deed by bringing smiles on the faces of several children on Monday as they handed out premium Yeezy trainers during their family trip to Uganda. The celebrity duo took time out from their schedule to gift the children as Kim posted highlights from the trip on her Instagram.
As the power couple approached the children, they sang and danced in jubilation. Kanye sported a neon yellow t-shirt and shorts coupled with a baseball cap as he celebrated with the youngsters. The rapper is then seen spending time with the children as Kim, a proud wife, films the occasion.
Kim, 37, and Kanye, 41, met with Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni on Monday and presented him with a pair of Yeezy sneakers as they took some time out for a meet-and-greet at the State House in Entebbe. They even met with his daughter Diana.
President Museveni later shared photographs of their meet, where they discussed tourism and promoting Uganda's arts, and thanked Kanye for the sneakers. The celebrity couple flew over to the East African Nation for a vacation in one of the country's national parks with their five-year-old daughter North.
According to reports, they had to leave their younger children back home, namely Saint, aged two, and Chicago, aged nine months. Kanye is reportedly recording his ninth album, Yandhi, while he is in the country as he is seen jamming to local music and performing with artistes.
Their trip comes less than a week after Kanye's fiery meeting with President Trump at the White House, where he said that wearing the Make America Great Again hat made him feel like "Superman", before touching on several topics that he planned to discuss with Trump. In response, the president said he's always open to new ideas, especially ones coming from Kanye, who he considers a "special guy".
According to President Museveni, the trio had "fruitful discussions" on Monday about promoting tourism and art in Uganda. He immediately took to Twitter after the meet to thank the famous pair and wished them a happy trip ahead. "I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and Kim Kardashian to Uganda. I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda's tourism and the arts. I think Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa," he said.
