American hip-hop star Kanye Omari West also known as Ye alongside Kim Kardashian arrived Uganda Friday, October 12 on a private jet before chartering another flight to Murchison Falls National Park, north west of Uganda.
In an interview with popular entertainment site TMZ last week, Kanye said he needed to ‘go and grab the soil’ so that his fans can ‘hear nature while we’re recording’.
‘‘We haven’t seen 90% of our world. We are going to Africa-Uganda,” Kanye West said.
The highly covered up visit was uncovered when a video of Kanye West stating that he will be visiting Uganda leaked on YouTube.
This is an opportunity for Uganda as a nation to promote the Pearl of Africa, noted the Uganda Tourism Board CEO Dr Stephen Asiimwe.
Kanye West and his team will be shooting a music video to complete his Yandhi Album that is scheduled for release on November 23, 2018.
Uganda has had the privilege to be visited by several other global entertainers some of whom have blessed the country with their wealth in terms of charity.
Ahead of his trip to Africa, Kanye visited president Donald Trump at the White House, discussing with him an ‘alternative universe’ and endorsing his ‘Make America Great’ (MAGA) campaign.
Kanye said wearing Trump’s MAGA hat made him feel like Superman.
Chobe Safari Lodge confirmed that American superstar Kanye West will be at the facility during his stay in Uganda.
Ye, as he is now known alongside Kim will on Saturday, October 13, take on a game drive in Murchison Falls National Park, have lunch at Paraa Safari Lodge before taking on an afternoon boat cruise to the bottom of Murchison Falls.
Murchison Falls, is a waterfall between Lake Kyoga and Lake Albert on the White Nile River in Uganda. At the top of Murchison Falls, the Nile forces its way through a gap in the rocks, only 7 metres wide, and tumbles 43 metres, before flowing westward into Lake Albert. The outlet of Lake Victoria sends around 300 cubic meters per second of water over the falls, squeezed into a gorge less than ten metres wide.
