Many people are aware that American hip hop star French Montana is in Uganda after photos of him having a good time at Café Aviato in Entebbe surfaced online a few days ago.

There has been doubt about whether Montana, who is an ex to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, was really in Uganda or it was just someone who looks like him.

The rapper has not updated his official social media pages since landing in Uganda and this left people wondering whether it was really him in the East African country.

However, on Tuesday, singer Eddy Kenzo posted photos with Montana in downtown Kampala with the caption “Bro French Montana on set.”

Some were quick to think Montana was on set shooting a music video for a collabo with Kenzo who has landed several collabos with big stars in the recent past.

But it turns out that Montana is shooting a documentary called “The motherland.”

Yes, Africa is Montana’s motherland. He was born Karim Kharbouch in Morocco in 1984 and only moved to the US when he was 13. At that time, he only spoke Arabic and French, hence, the moniker French Montana.

We are told the “Hold Up” hit maker who survived a gunshot to the head in 2003 is shooting this documentary across several countries in Africa.
