Kanye West coming back to Uganda, to be named tourism ambassador

American rapper Kanye West, who was recently in Uganda on a private visit, is set to return to Uganda in January 2019.

Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West will immediately be crowned Uganda’s Tourism Ambassador on a visit, which will now be official.

According to Uganda’s State Tourism Minister Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi, the singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur and fashion designer West, will jet in in January for the tourism job.

“On November 8 this year, we shall name Zari Hassan a tourism ambassador on a boat ride in Queen Elizabeth National Park. After that in January, Kanye West will come back to Uganda to take up a tourism ambassadorial role,” said Kiwanda in Kampala while launching the Tulambule Uganda Christmas Festive Campaign.

The campaign aims at ensuring that more Ugandans visit their country at highly discounted rates.
