Days after a rambunctious meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House, a more subdued Kanye West presented Yoweri Museveni with a pair of white sports shoes made by his own company that he and Kardashian then signed with a marker pen.

The couple arrived on Friday and are staying at a luxurious safari lodge in a national park that boasts spectacular waterfalls and wild games including buffaloes, antelopes, lions, giraffes, and warthogs.

Museveni’s office said the president gave the U.S. entertainment stars Ugandan names.

He dubbed West – who himself declared last month that he wanted to be known as just “Ye” – “Kanyesigye”, a common name among the Banyankore, the ethnic group that Museveni hails from. Kardashian was granted the name “Kemigisha”, meaning “the one with blessings from God,” Museveni’s office said in a statement.
