The Material Girl singer, who is currently the Goodwill Ambassador for Child Welfare, posted a picture of a wilderness on Sunday morning, on Instagram stating that she was indeed in Kenya.

Later in the day, she shared some of the moments from her visit to the Kibera slum with Shining Hope for Communities, an organization that links free schools for girls to essential services for communities like clean water, and free health care.

The 57-year-old icon was not impressed with what she saw and posted another grim picture of the sewers that dot the only known Africa’s largest slum.

Madonna also visited Masai Mara.

Non-Governmental Organisations have been criticized for hosting international celebrities in poverty-stricken Kibera slums as part of milking donor funds hence the tag ‘poorism’.

The American entertainer has amassed a large following on social media with over 7.5 million followers on Instagram alone.

Having sold more than 300 million records worldwide, Madonna is recognised as the best-selling female recording artist of all time by Guinness World Records.
