Having headed to Uganda to finish work on YANDHI – which is now believed to be dropping on November 23 – Kanye West has now gifted a number of YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 sneakers to children in the country. In videos posted to his recently reactivated Twitter, ‘Ye showed kids in Uganda dancing wearing the Triple White sneakers, as well as bags packed full of the shoe.

Also during his trip to Uganda, Kanye also gave new YEEZYs to the country’s president, Yoweri Museveni, during a meeting. Take a look at the clip below.

In other Kanye news, Charlamagne Tha God recently canceled his upcoming talk with ‘Ye.
