She clarified that her invitation was courtesy of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi and emphasised that the trip was fully self-sponsored.

"Some of us don't need government funds to thrive, this trip is fuly self sponsored, this is me investing in my brand and minding my business," she said.

The U.S. Embassy has also clarified that it did not pay for the head of states transport.

On Wednesday, Tyler Perry expressed his disappointment at not being able to personally welcome President William Ruto and his delegation during their recent tour of Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

Despite his busy schedule, Perry shared his excitement and gratitude for the visit, promising to make a trip to Kenya soon.

On social media, Tyler Perry wrote, "Unfortunately, my schedule was booked and I'm heartbroken that I couldn't move things around in time to be there to greet President Ruto of Kenya as he and his family and delegation toured Tyler Perry studios.

"The good news is that means I will have to make my way to Kenya very soon! I am honored, humbled, and thankful that you stopped by President Ruto."

Although Tyler Perry couldn't be present, television host and comedian Steve Harvey stepped in to greet President Ruto and his delegation.

Harvey committed to visit Kenya in September and serve as the chief guest for the Jamhuri Day celebrations in December.
