VIDEO: American Rapper Kanye West Confirms Visit to Uganda

Controversial American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur and fashion designer Kanye West is coming to Uganda.

Kanye West revealed on Wednesday that he wanted to explore Africa. When asked whether he was planning to visit South Africa, he noted that he would be visiting Uganda.

The 41-year-old rapper, who postponed the release of his new album to November 2018, explained that the album lacked an African touch, a reason he decided to visit Africa.

“It’s just a full Ye album and those five albums I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation and now the alien Ye is fully back in mode… We’re going to Africa in two weeks to record. I felt this energy when I was in Chicago. I felt the roots. We have to go to what is known as Africa,” he said.

Preparations in Uganda.
