Madonna brings family to Malawi for son David to 'receive his tribal name'


Madonna brought her adopted son David back to his ancestral village in Malawi to recieve his "tribal name".

The singer has taken all four of her children to Africa as part of a trip for her charity Raising Malawi.

She shared a picture of her and sons Rocco, 15, and David Banda, 10, along with village members, captioning it: "David receives his Ngoni tribal name in his ancestral village."

The 57-year-old wore green tartan trousers and a bomber jacket, while David opted for traditional ceremonial clothing and Rocco wore camouflage trousers.

In another picture of her with Rocco and David,  the trio looked like they had just had a music session as her sons brandished drum sticks.

Alongside it Madonna wrote: "Discussing Responsibility. One must live up to their name!"

She officially adopted David in May 2008, although the adoption was controversial as Madonna had not lived in the country for a year beforehand, as is required by Malawian law.

Joining her on the trip were daughters Lourdes and Mercy James, who was also adopted from Malawi.

The family went to visit the Home of Hope orphanage that Madonna funds.

Giving her own response to the tragic police shootings in America, Madonna wrote: "We have forgotten our humanity.. that we are on this road together. Each of us sparks of the same soul.. And if this ship goes down we all go down together. Pray for peace in the World."
