Bono backs up Madonna
Rock superstar Bono has backed Madonna’s controversial adoption of a needy African child, saying “I think it’s really great“.
The U2 singer, who is also perhaps the best-known anti-poverty campaigner in the world, has praised Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie for the adoption of David Banda, a child from Malawi.
“I’m very happy that Madonna should offer succour and more than that to a young boy,” Bono said. “He’s got a great opportunity now”
Madonna has come under fire for taking the Malawi boy back to Britain. But the singer said she had been astounded by the criticism.
The support from Bono, who has an in-depth knowledge of African health and social issues, is a much-needed endorsement for the singer’s actions.
