Kanye West Gifts Museveni with Yeezy Sneakers

Kanye West is staying busy in Africa! The 41-year-old rapper, who recently traveled to Uganda alongside his wife Kim Kardashian West and daughter North, met with the country’s president, Yoweri K Museveni, on Monday.

While discussing plans to boost the country’s tourism, West mentioned he wanted to create a kind of “Jurassic Park [or] Disney World,” according to a video of the visit obtained by TMZ.

During the video, the president also asked West how many children the couple have, to which West remarked, “We have 3. I would like to have 7.”

With a smile, the KKW Beauty mogul replied, “I would not like to have 7.”

Bringing along his wife, the famous couple gave the president a pair of white Yeezy sneakers, which they both signed, according to the BBC.

Museveni went on to give the couple a gift of his own: Ugandan names.

West received the name “Kanyesigye,” meaning “I trust,” while Kim got “Kemigisha,” which means “the one with blessings from God,”. He also gave the pair a book about the country, entitled, Uganda, Gifted by Nature.

“I welcome American entertainment stars Kanye West and @KimKardashian to Uganda. I held fruitful discussions with the duo on how to promote Uganda’s tourism and the arts,” he wrote on his official Twitter page, alongside photos of the couple from their visit.

“I thank Kanye for the gift of white sneakers. Enjoy your time in Uganda. It is the true Pearl of Africa,” he added.

West and his wife arrived at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport on Friday, and later checked into a Chobe Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park.
