Kanye West is in Uganda recording new music, as has been widely reported. After reactivating his Twitter account following a short hiatus, West has been populating his feed with footage from his time in Uganda. One of the latest videos shows the YEEZY designer handing out various adidas shoes, including a huge bag filled with "Cream" YEEZY Boost 350 V2 kicks, to local school children.

The video was posted to his Twitter feed at 6 a.m. EST and is captioned “We got love.” The video shows Kanye and his entourage arriving on location and being greeted by a large group of singing and dancing children.

West, excited and smiling, begins to unpack various bags filled with adidas sneakers, including the aforementioned "Cream" YEEZY Boost 350 V2s. Watch the video below (skip to around the 11-minute mark).

Shortly after, West posted a second video, this time showing children who had put on their YEEZYSs. The youngsters could be seen dancing and running around in their new footwear. Peep it below.

In addition to gifting school children free YEEZYs, West and wife Kim Kardashian met with controversial Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and presented him with a signed pair of "Cream" YEEZY Boost 350 V2s.

A Facebook post by the president’s office revealed that Museveni had given Kanye and Kim Ugandan names. ’Ye was named Kanyesigye, which means "Ï trust," while Kim was given the name Kemigisha, which means "the one with blessings from God."
