Kanye West might be affected by Ugandan Social Media Tax Policy

5

Kanye  West has carved a niche for himself when it comes to the Kingdom of rap music, but in terms of social responsibility a lot has been said about the rapper.

Recently, a video of him at the White House hit the internet and most people of colour described him as an embarrassment to the resilience that the African-American stands for.

Well, the young man is currently in Africa and he has chosen Uganda to be the save Haven for him to record his new Album. The rapper had popped on twitter in a country that has restrictions on the use of social media.

Hopefully, Kanye might have to follow standard procedure of 200 Ugandan shillings  or $0.05 per day to use 60 mobile apps such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

However, Kanye West has been documenting his trip to Uganda since his arrival on social media. He has however faced some backlash for his meeting with President Museveni. A former musician and current Parliament member, Robert Kyagulanyi has opposed the ban and also led protests against the social media tax.

“It would have been great if he had used his voice for the good of people in Africa… I’m a musician but I am not allowed to stage a show in my own country because I disagree with the president. It is very disappointing.”He said in a report.

Well, let us hope that the end of his trip and the recording of his forthcoming album he would not be slammed with a state warrant requesting he pays up his tax loans before flying out of the country.

He is trying to redeem himself from the white house case. He has enough cash to pay for the tax if taxed
