American rapper Ye, formerly Kanye West, currently on a private visit to Uganda, has checked on President Museveni at statehouse, in Entebbe.

The singer who was accompanied by his wife, Kim Kardashian, a television star handed the president a pair of white Adidas Yeezy sneakers.

Adidas Yeezy is the official collaboration sneaker by Kanye West and Adidas.

“President Museveni today met US music star Kanye West aka YE and his wife, Kim Kardashian, at State House Entebbe. The head of state’s discussion with the American entertainment stars focused on supporting Uganda’s tourism and the arts,” Don Wanyama, the President’s senior press secretary wrote on his personal Facebook account.

President Museveni’s fashion sense has for long come under criticism, with many on the Internet trolling his oversized trousers and shoes.

Sometime in June, the president received a colourful-fitting, jacket from the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali.

In a tweet, Museveni thanked the couple for visiting Uganda and for the gift.

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