Madonna & Her 5 Kids Reportedly Take Trips to Malawi & Kenya despite COVID-19 Restrictions
Despite travel plans being restricted to and from several countries due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease, musician Madonna appears to have managed to travel across the world.
According to recent Instagram posts, Madonna, 62, managed to take trips across the world even though there are travel bans due to COVID-19. The star traveled from Los Angeles to London.
She then went to Malawi and Kenya to celebrate the New Year. The star was joined by her American backup dancer boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, 26.
The singer was also accompanied by five of her six children - Rocco Ritchie, 20, adopted son David Banda, 15, daughters Mercy James, 14, and twins Estere and Stella, 8.
According to Daily Mail, on December 24, 2020, the star flew from Los Angeles to London. She was joined by her boyfriend and her four adopted children for this leg of the journey.
In London, they picked up Rocco who is her child from her marriage to British director Guy Ritchie. The director also joined the group for their visit to Africa, according to the publication.
Four days later, they all flew to Malawi and had a stopover in Egypt. Reports state that Ricardo Gomes, the musician’s personal photographer, was also flown out to capture the vacation.
Madonna and her family got to spend a week in Malawi and met with President Lazarus Chakwera. They also got to mingle with locals and visited a hospital which the singer founded.
Last week Wednesday, the group flew to Kenya for a safari trip. On Monday, January 11, 2021, the star shared a video of herself and her boyfriend with the Pokot tribe of western Kenya.
According to sources who spoke to The Sun, the group made sure to take regular COVID-19 tests throughout the trip. In some clips, Madonna could be seen taking the test for precautionary measures.
It is believed that the singer traveled in her own private jet. Malawi happens to be the country where the star adopted four of her children and the seven-time Grammy winner calls it her “home away from home.”
Last Friday, the musician finished off her week in Malawi by visiting the Jacaranda School for Orphans near Blantyre. She attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the opening of the Madame X Dance Studio.
The studio was paid for through her non-profit organization, Raising Malawi, which she co-founded with Michael Berg in 2006. Madonna also gave a moving speech at the opening of the studio.
Her son David, who seems to be following his mother in the music industry, played guitar as the music class sang Bill Withers' 1972 hit song “Lean on Me.” The sing-along was a family affair with the other siblings joining in.
Madonna sang along while Mercy played an electronic keyboard. The “Levitating” vocalist’s twin daughters strummed ukeleles as they joined in on the fun, showing off their own skills.
It seems her other daughter and oldest child Lourdes Leon, 24, didn’t tag along on the trip. Leon was born in 1996 when her famous mother was dating personal trainer and actor Carlos Leon.
She is a graduate of La Guardia School of Performing Arts in New York. The young woman, who is making a name for herself, now works as a model and has also done some acting in the past.
