A renowned American RnB artist, Akon, is on a visit in Uganda.
During his visit, he met president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as he intends to make investments that will extend his business base in East Africa.
Following his twitter post Museveni marketed Uganda as one of the best tourism destination known for its good weather owing to the fact that the country is on the equator but with high altitude. Something tha is rare to find.
Mama @JanetMuseveni and I told @Akon and his wife that Uganda is the best tourism destination, known for its fantastic weather, considering that we are right on the Equator but with a high altitude. This is unique! There are only about two other places gifted that much.
The Grammy-nominated singer who plans to build a futuristic city in Africa was accompanied by his wife Rozina Negusei during the visit.
According to Rozina who had visited Uganda in January with potential investors said there was a plan to invest Ksh1.3B in the country’s entertainment industry.
