Over the past 20 years, the name “Bono” has become synonymous with charity and social action. Whether it’s campaigning for third-world debt relief or helping to raise awareness about the Aids epidemic, Bono is never afraid to roll up his sleeves and get involved.

In a recent interview at the Pan African Media Conference, Bono explained how he first got involved in Africa. He says:

“My work with Africa started in Dublin in the seventies with the anti-apartheid movement…And then in the eighties we got even more deeply involved when we made a record called, “I Ain’t Gonna Play Sun City.” And we were all campaigning — it was very ‘right on’. That’s where we got to meet my current boss, as I call him, Archbishop Tutu and Nelson Mandela, who really then re-entered my life with the call to debt forgiveness.”

We love it!
