She added on a different post; "Visiting the Pokot Tribe in the Baringo Valley was a special moment for all of us. They invited us to dance with them and shared their daily prayer of thanks. 🇰🇪 #pokot #kenya @ahla_malik @legit.rbn"
She jetted in from Blantyre after a week-long stay in Malawi where she made a charity trip to Jacaranda school for Orphans in January and opened a dance academy, 'Madame X Dance Studio', courtesy of her non-profit organization, "Raising Malawi".
The Queen Of Pop was accompanied by her 15 year old so, Malawi native David Banda, daughter Mercy James and eight-year-old twins Stella and Estere. Word is Banda reconnected with his father Yohane in Lupunga during her trip to Malawi Central region. They also visited Mercy James Centre, pediatric surgery and intensive care unit at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the capital Blantyre.
She said; "I feel like we ended on a very special note because Jacaranda is an exceptional place, as you know. The reason it's so special to me, not only because there are so many amazing, talented children here, but there's also amazing teachers and the founders are so passionate an=bout what you do. It's contagious. You're teaching them skills that when it comes to art and creativity and expression, these are the things that keep us alive and keep us going through times of trouble and challenges."
"And you know, this has been a tough year for everybody. But if you think about it, every year's a tough year in Malawi. What's going to keep us going is loving what we do, learning and loving what they do, learning skills from visual arts, designing clothes, and playing musical instruments to dance, which is my first love. So this place holds a special place in my heart. Just keep up the work everybody, and that's it. Believe in your dreams!"
It's not the first time the singer has visited Kenya; she was here in 2016. she supported the Beyond Zero campaign, an initiative by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta to improve Maternal and childbirth, where she also engaged with Kibera residents.
