Singer-songwriter Madonna is in Kenya. The 62-year-old pop sensation Saturday shared moments from her meetup with the Samburu and revelled at their rich culture.
The Kenyan visit follows her week-long stay in Malawi where she made a charity trip to Jacaranda School for Orphans on January 8 and opened a dance academy, Madame X Dance Studio, courtesy of her non-profit organization, Raising Malawi.
The Grammy award-winning pop superstar was accompanied by her 15-year-old son, Malawi native David Banda, daughter Mercy James (14) and eight-year-old twins, Stella and Estere. While in Malawi, Banda reconnected with his father Yohane in Lipunga during her trip to Malawi’s central region. Also in the itinerary was a visit to Mercy James Centre, a pediatric surgery and intensive care unit at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the capital Blantyre.
The visit is similar to one the singer made in 2016 when she toured Kenya in conjunction with a charity, Shining Hope for Communities, and lend her voice in support of Beyond Zero Campaign, an initiative by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta to improve maternal and child health.
