Pop star, Madonna

Celebrated pop star, actress, director and writer Madonna is celebrating her 60th birthday in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh.


She has shared photos of herself wearing Berber headdress on instagram.


Relationship with Africa
Madonna’s relationship with the African continent is well documented.


The US singer has six children, four of whom she adopted from Malawi. She called her 12-year-old son, David Banda, “the future president of Malawi” in a tweet on his birthday earlier this year.


Madonna has had a fractious relationship with authorities from the Southern African State.


In 2013, Malawi accused Madonna of “bullying State officials”, exaggerating her contribution to the country and demanding VIP treatment.


Madonna’s manager accused Malawi’s government of having a “grudge” against the singer’s charity, Raising Malawi, which she founded in 2006, the same year she adopted David.
