Kanye West traveled to Haiti in what is appearing more to be a state visit as he was received by the Haitian president Jovenel Moise at the airport.
The rapper who has remained tight-lipped on his impromptu visit to the country is said to be tied up in closed door meetings that are gearing up to his plans of building a city in the country.
The city to be dedicated, designed and solely funded by the rapper is said to be a project that Haiti is really looking into.
But save for that, political analysts are digging into this visit and see how it touches on his presidential bid and what mileage he was looking to achieve with this. At the top of their opinionated views is that the rapper was looking to upscale his profile by having a president receive him at the airport to bring it to the fore that he can relate and make foreign policy if he were to become a president.
Kanye had Naomi Osaka and her family also at the airport greeting Kanye.
We will keep you posted as this story develops.
