In the season of adoptions, here comes another one! This time it’s Madonna who’s bitten by the adoption bug.

Confirming the earlier reports about Madonna ready to adopt an African baby, she indeed adopted a one-year-old orphan from Malawi, the tenth poorest nation in the world.

The pop star, worth an estimated £248m, arrived by private plane in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi and plans to spend at least $3m (£1.6m) on programmes to alleviate poverty in Malawi and another $1m to fund a documentary about the plight of children in the country.

What kind of ‘confession’ Madonna is trying to suggest by adopting an African child? Would it change the plight of needy Africans? Well surely, the Material Girl is trying and in the process, she may manage an image-upliftment, which seems to be the original purpose of the exercise.
