WOULD U BE FOR AFRICA 2? Bono is not letting go of efforts to help Africa

Posted on Wednesday, February 26 @ 05:28:42 CET by Macphisto

(Eurweb.com) -- Bono just loves himself some Africa, and we ain't mad at him at all. The U2 frontman recently hooked up with musician Bob Geldof to form DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade in Africa). It's the latest in a series of moves he's mad to assist African countries in need.

"They are three of the most pressing issues facing Africa," Bono told the Hollywood Reporter. "It's not just, let's help the poor people. At the heart of this is, do we really believe in equality and equal opportunity?"

While Bono says the world is right to be concerned about "what is going on in the Middle East and the swell of terrorism," he stresses that by furthering AIDS prevention work in Africa, "I think we can actually stymie the malaise of anti-American, anti-Western hatred if we actually get out and show what it is we are capable of."

Bono was among a host of stars associated with a planned AIDS benefit concert last month in Cape Town, but the event was canceled due to problems with broadcast rights and sponsorship.

Bono, the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, and Clash principal Joe Strummer had also been working on a song, "48864," named for the ID number worn by Mandela during his years of Apartheid-era imprisonment.
