The weekend was highlighted by the sudden visit of the ‘Yeezy’ rapper Kanye West to Uganda together with his wife Kim Kardashian and daughter North West. The two arrived on Friday before heading to Chobe Safari Lodge where they had a weekend that Kim referred to as ‘memorable’.
Despite being in the US, singer Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool saw this an opportunity that could may be take his music on another level by making a collaboration with the US star.
‘Taata Hendricks’ went to social media to express to Kanye West his interest of featuring on his album, ‘Yandhi’, that he came to complete from the country, with the help of Swangz Avenue music label.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you Kanye West together with your wife and management team for choosing Africa, but mainly Uganda as one of the countries you will visit and record your album… At the moment, am in your home country too for a business trip but the main reason for my post is to request you to feature me on your current recording of a new album… ” He penned his request
Bebe Cool went ahead to reveal why he did so to ask for a collabo, stating that it’s what every musician in Africa would like to say but many wouldn’t express it because of fearing being snubbed, adding that he will understand it if Kanye doesn’t honor his request.
“It’s within a lot of young people in Africa to know what they want but fear to try, or make a move and by me doing this, my hope is it will inspire them to always confront challenges head-on,…… I will understand if it doesn’t happen but at least I did not shy away from what I am sure all African artists would want me inclusive. Otherwise I will be honored if my request is granted.” he concluded.
However, the post that has now gone viral on a number of social media platforms has received mixed reaction, with most of the fans trolling the ‘Batiddemu’ singer on how he disrespected him self to beg for a collabo.
The mockery is not only from his haters, but also fellow musicians led by ‘his’ usual suspect, singer Alex Bagonza popularly known by stage name Apass.
