AMERICAN idol’s open and outspoken judge Simon Cowell has reportedly been left speechless whilst visiting Nairobi, Kenya earlier this year, in January, as he just couldn’t believe the devastating extent of the poverty in the region and those neighbouring it. 

Cowell was in the African nation along with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest throughout the filming of the charity special of Idol titled ‘Idol Gives Back’ when the desperate circumstances forced him into a temporary state of reflection. 

Seacrest was quoted on the experience stating: “The first day, we rode to a slum, and it was worse than anything I had imagined – the ground is moist with sewage, people are so sick.” 

He adds: “At one point, Simon just had this look on his face like he was going to be sick, and he said, ‘I’ve just got to sit down somewhere. I just can’t see anymore right now.'”
