American rapper, singer, and songwriter Kanye West may be visiting Kenya if his schedule is anything to go by.

A schedule of his diary shows that Kenya may be in his plans with his Twitter account @DondaTimes showing a Nairobi performance on the 7th of December, 2024 at possibly Nyayo Stadium. He will then go to Lagos.

Nairobi and Lagos are his only African tours. 

The singer is currently trending online following Jay Z's remarks at the 66th Grammy Award ceremony, where he called them out for not awarding Beyonce the Album of the Year, despite her having won 32 times.

Many are referring to a viral moment when Kanye stormed the stage as Taylor Swift accepted her award at the VMAs for Best Video by a Female Artiste.

He interrupted her speech to announce his displeasure about Beyonce not being recognized.

 As Swift walked up to accept her award for Best Female Music Video of the Year, West quickly hopped on stage to crash her speech.

As the singer looked on confused, West stated, "Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you. I'mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!"

This was in response to Swift's "You Belong With Me" winning in the aforementioned category over Beyoncé's "Single Ladies."

This, of course, put Beyoncé in an awkward place, and she was seen in the audience mouthing "Oh, Kanye" in horror.

She would later win the more prestigious award—the Music Video of the Year—that same night and invite Swift up on stage with her for the chance to finish the earlier botched awards speech.
