Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West were pretty much like any other fam visiting Africa … except they had a phalanx of security at Chobe Safari Lodge, a five-star luxury resort in north western Uganda.
Kim, Kanye and their brood arrived at Entebbe International Airport Friday October 12, with a huge entourage. They were shuttled to the resort where they’ll be staying until October 19th.
Kanye is in Uganda to work on his next album – and has contracted Swangz Avenue, an audio and film production house in Uganda to join his team in producing and shooting some music videos.
Big Sean is at Chobe Safari Lodge as well, most likely to collaborate with Kanye on the album.
According to TMZ, Kim Kardashian is so stoked and wants to extend their stay in Uganda, home to Africa’s Gentle Giants – the Mountain Gorillas, Source of the Nile and to the legendary Mountains of the Moon – Mt. RWENZORI.
Kanye told TMZ he wanted to go to Africa to “feel the energy.” He wants to record into a mic that’s in the middle of nature and yes he found the perfect place at Murchison Falls National Park.
The State Minister for Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities in Uganda, Hon Godfrey Ssuubi Kiwanda had this to say on hearing about the visit of the US celebrities, “You will never prove that Uganda is the Pearl of Africa until you have visited, enjoy your stay Kim and Kanye”.
