Uganda’s opposition legislator and Kyadondo East Member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has lashed out at Kanye West for meeting with president Yoweri Museveni.

On Monday,president Museveni posted photos of him exchanging gifts with the US rapper and wife Kim Kardashian at state house. Muscian Bobi Wine said it was immoral of West to  “just to rub shoulders with the president”.

“He is hobnobbing with a president w-ho has been in power now for 32 years and restricts any freedom, a country where opposition activists are tortured and imprisoned,

“It would have been great if he had used his voice for the good of people in Africa,

“I’m a musician but I am not allowed to stage a show in my own country because I disagree with the president. It is very disappointing.” Kyagulanyi stated.

Museveni received a pair of signature Yeezy Boost trainers while the president gifted West with a signed copy of his book, Sowing the Mustard Seed: The Struggle for Freedom and Democracy in Uganda.

Mr. Museveni showed his gratitude towards the rappers visit and remarked that they both enjoyed “fruitful discussions” about promoting tourism and arts.

In his comment about US president Donald Trump attitude towards Africa, the Ugandan president said “I love Trump because he tells the Africans frankly … the Africans need to solve their problems, they need to be strong. It is the fault of the Africans that they are weak”

West is in Uganda with his wife, the reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, to shoot a video in a game park where the rapper is recording his ninth album in a purpose-built tent.

Excited West published a post on social media detailing the inspirations from his Africa tour so far especially from Fela Kuti, the popular Nigerian musician, composer and activist who died in 1997.

“The music is the best on the planet. I am the best living recording artist. We, rather, because the spirits flow through me. The spirit of Fela, the spirit of [Bob] Marley, the spirit of [Tu]Pac [Shakur] flows through me,” West said.

However, muscian Seun Kuti, son of Fela Kuti in response to Kanye posted “On behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West,” he said.
