MADONNA TO BECOME MALAWI CITIZEN
Pop superstar Madonna is planning to tighten her bond with the African nation of Malawi. A government official has revealed the singing icon is set to be made an honorary citizen of the country.The icon, has become emotionally attached to the impoverished nation after adopting little David Banda from an orphanage there in 2006, leading her to fund orphanages all over the country. She has also set plans in motion to build a $40 million school to help provide education to Malawian girls. Madonna recently produced the documentary I Am Because We Are, in which she chronicles the plight of the Malawian people. The documentary opened to critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival in France earlier this month. And now the singing star will be honored for her devotion to the country, with the country’s government making plans to grant her the same rights as their citizens, reports Britain’s Hello! magazine. Billy Kaunda, Malawi’s deputy tourism and culture minister, is quoted as saying, "We are proud as a country to be associated with such a megastar."She will have freedom of all cities here. She won’t be bothered with issues like visas and other limitations."
