Kanye West raps in Ugandan flag

US rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has posted videos of himself wrapped in a Ugandan flag as he improvises to a backing track.

People have been sharing this image of Ye:

Ye arrived in the country, with his family, on Friday and went to a luxury resort close to the River Nile.

The country’s ambassador to the UN posted pictures of them getting off a helicopter.

And he also posted a picture of Ye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, enjoying the views:

A fortnight ago, Ye told celebrity news website TMZ that he wanted to travel to “what is known as Africa” to finish his latest album.

He wanted to put “the mic in the open so you can hear nature when we’re recording”.

In the video he posted on Twitter, Ye starts off sitting on a sofa with the Ugandan flag around his shoulders improvising a rap. He then gets up and walks outside and continues performing saying, among other things, “relax your mind, let your conscience be free”.

Meanwhile, Uganda’s tourist industry is using the trip as a way to promote the country:
