Kanye West is on a quest to find renewed musical inspiration in the motherland. The rapper brought his wife, Kim Kardashian, and their kids along for the ride. Although the creative juices have already starting seeping into Ye’s chakras, the entertainer felt the need to add politics to his African journey. Kanye and Kim were pictured meeting with the president of Uganda. While the country’s leader, Yoweri Museveni, thanked them for the “fruitful discussion,” many social media users have criticized the event before they even caught wind of the leader’s giving them new African names.
The meeting apparently went so well that the president baptized the married couple with African monikers. It has been reported that Kanye and Kim were given the names Kanyesigye and Kemigisha respectively.
Angella Abushedde of the Presidential Press Unit in Uganda shared the news with enthusiasm.
