KAMPALA – Uganda’s artist, Bebe Cool (Moses Ssali) after being appointed the UN Tuberculosis ambassador, the singer took to social media to beg American rapper Kanye West for a collabo.
Bebe Cool has also informed Kanye West that every local musician wants a collaboration with him but they are too shy to speak up.
“As an African open minded and know what I want artist, let me be the first one to openly make this request without any fear because 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, ” Bebe Cool wrote on his Facebook page.
Bebe Cool, however, was quick to console himself in case the request is turned down.
“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 honoured if my request is granted but in the meantime have fun in Uganda because it is the Pearl of Africa.”
Currently, in the US, Bebe thanked the American rapper, producer and fashion designer for choosing Uganda as the place to finish his new Album.
Kanye West who recently changed his name to Ye and wife, also reality TV star, Kim Kardashian arrived in Uganda on Friday.
Kanye West is reportedly in Uganda for a video shoot for his new music album.
The couple is staying at Chobe lounge in Murchison Falls, northwest of the capital, Kampala.
