Madonna Visits Africa’s Largest Slum In Kenya, Takes Shots With Street Children


American queen of pop, Madonna, visits Kenya. The Material Girl who still reinvents herself, made a discreet or silent entry into the country at a yet unknown date.

But she on Sunday posted an Instagram photo of what looks like her Safari view, and captioned it “Good Morning Kenya!”

The song writer had adopted two kids from Malawi and many speculate that her recent visit in Kenya is to adopt another child. Some others say the singer is here for holiday purposes.

However, the seven-time Grammy Award-winner and founder of Raising Malawi and a Goodwill Ambassador for Child Welfare spent the day touring Kibra, also known as Kibera, Africa’s largest slum.

Her trip to the slum has earned her a reputation.

The 57-year old American with an estimated net worth of over $800 million shared some of the moments from her visit to the slum.

By her post, she explored the slum with Shining Hope for Communities, an organization that links free schools for girls to essential services for communities like clean water, and free health care.

In an Instagram post she published, Madonna simply captioned a photo of some children she met at the slum with: “Striking a pose in Kibera, Rebel Hearts”.
