Demi Lovato: “I Fell in Love with Kenya”! American Pop Star speaks to Ellen DeGeneres on Celebrating her 21st in Africa



Demi Lovato - October 2013 - BellaNaija

When you are a famous pop sensation, and you want to celebrate your 21st birthday, visiting a continent and devoting your time will probably not top your to-do-list.

But for American singer/songwriter Demi Lovato, it was certainly what she had in mind.

In August, BellaNaija brought you photos of the pop star celebrating her 21st in Kenya by volunteering in communities through the Free the Children foundation. (Click here to read and see photos).

Yesterday Demi visited The Ellen Show and told host Ellen DeGeneres that she fell in love with Kenya and felt sad when she left.

Check out the clip!

    I can’t stand when people have this image of “Africa”. So she went to Africa (she only mentions Kenya once btw) to chill with animals and “Massai Warriors”? Ok, girl.

    Disappointed in Bellanaija for putting this post up.

    Where in the world is Demi Lovato, because Africa isn’t a country.

    Africa isn’t a country. cmon demi,pls come to Lagos,Nigeria maybe your view will change and you will drop that silly pillow of yours behind. she makes it sound like if there are animals everywhere and we all live in huts.

      It won’t change if she gets to Lagos. She would be more
      amazed that Africa has human zoos in some countries.

    A lot of you don’t understand this their understanding of
    Africa as a land roaming with animals and people in need of help.
    In a nation of 160 million people and 36 states, how many cities
    can you boast of that which ones also photo well? Very few I would
    say. Not only that the few would be pockets of privately built
    estate that has become Nigeria’s Hollywood photographic

    Those of you saying she should have gone to Lagos instead are the ones portraying your ignorance.
