The son of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni Muhoozi Kainerugaba says he is ready to build a statue of the late American singer Tupac in his hometown in the United States, if the people of that nation have failed to do so, more than 25 years since his death.

The controversial Muhoozi, who recently announced that he will run for president in the 2026 elections, suggested that he wants to 'help' Americans by building a statue of the famous musician.

The musician, born Tupac Amaru Shakur but known by the stage name of 2Pac, is one of the most famous artists of all time who has sold more than 75 million records worldwide. He was killed in 1996.

Muhoozi said: "If our dear brothers and sisters in the USA have not built a huge statue of the greatest African singer of our generation, I want to help. I want to build a statue of Tupac in his hometown. May the old man rest in peace!" he tweeted.

Born in 1971, 2Pac has remained a transcendent rap figure even in his death, in his film and music career.

The musician married his then-girlfriend Keisha Morris, a former law student, in 1995, but their union was annulled ten months later.

The star famous for the hit 'Dear Mama' was once arrested for sexual harassment.

In October 1993 he was arrested in Atlanta for shooting two off-duty police officers. A month later, he and two other men were accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her hotel room.

Two years after February, he was sentenced to 18 months to 4 and a half years by a judge who accused him of 'an act of cruelty against a helpless woman.

His first film appearance was in 1991. His acting skills were so good that three more films were released in his role soon after his death.

He is widely regarded as an important figure in hip-hop culture and his popularity in pop culture in general has been noted.

Even after his death, 2Pac has been honored and celebrated for his contribution to the music and film industry.
