Who has read that letter Madonna sent to the president of Malawi?

Madonna, who's currently in Malawi to visit the schools she funded, sent a letter to Malawi president, Joyce Banda, asking to meet her. The letter made the president mad. To understand why, you have to read the letter yourself. Find it after the cut...

The letter was written on rough paper and was riddled with misspellings. President Banda blasted Madonna, claiming that the 54year old pop star reneged on her promise to build a $15 million academy for girls. They say she's only building classrooms and not entire schools.

Madonna...BEHT WHY?

Anonymous said...

Ummm that's the problem with Africans, we feel entitled!!! Why does Madonna have the build schools? Why can't we do it ourselves? Pathetic.

Ayomide Olugbenga said...

WHy doe everything always have to be so formal? SO what it's on rough paper? So what it's handwritten? Gosh! And besides, the President of Malawi should be grateful Madonna has chosen to even spend a dime of her money in Malawi even if all she wanted to build was a reinforced toilet! As president, that's YOUR job! So if someone wants to come help you do part of it, you sure as hell better be grateful.

Madonna is very sick,does she want to blind the woman with such bad handwriting.
I guess she smoked something before writing that letter.what insolence.

Madonna said...

I find the letter quite polite and friendly. Madonna is an icon, a legend worked up her success ladder by her own efforts into time and is of a greater persona than the president who probably got elected via fraud or chance. I love Madonna

The president shud go and sit down joo. Instead of her to encourage her and appreciate to her so that she wil do more she is there getting angry. Na her sabi sha. Madonna do not own her or her country any kobo so she is not obliged to build a school for then. The president shud ashamed that a western is building anythin for them. Her Govt shud be able to provide basic needs to their citizen. Wat abt u Mrs president? Wat exactly hv u done for your pple from ur own money talk more of your govt...Mchew

Anonymous said...

There is definitely nothing wrong abt this letter, its an informal letter written to a personal friend.is she angry because the letter is rude or that she didn't fulfill her promise? The president shld also bear it in mind that this lady is an entertainer and might not know all these formal ways of doing things.

SEGUN said...

lollzzz... Madonna was definitely high when she wrote this.
Above all the President should realize that she wished her best of luck, letter was written with warm regards and great respect. I think the message is more important than the medium. lollxxxx.

She must be joking. How can she actually write such to a President? Anyway, I have always known her to have these illogical attitudes.

JJ said...

I honestly don't see anything wrong with the letter. It was handwritten because she was in a country that that doesn't have much. What was she supposed to do, carry a computer and a printer around with her or send her a text message? Malawi is so poor that the bulk of her budget comes from foreign donations, seriously. What country runs like that? African leaders need to get over the formalities.

And to blame her for reneging on building a $15 million academy for girls? Mrs. Banda needs to get a grip. Why is she the President of Malawi? That's her job to cater to her citizens. Don't look to an individual to build the infrastructure you have failed to erect for your own citizens. African leaders should stop blaming others for their short comings and start doing what they are supposed to do.

Anonymous said...

Being the typical Africans they are, the Government of Malawi asked Madonna to give them the $15 m she was donating for the project so that they would award the contract and determine where the school would be located. Of course we all know what that means. Therefore she decided to renovate and equip many schools in different local govts....that's the crux of the wahala. I support Madonna all the way...after all is her money and she wants to donate it to charity for the common good and not to govt officials who intend to feather their own nests...

I can't really see the letter, its too faint, but I think she(Ms President) has no right being vexed, Madonna doing anything for them is a privilege and not a right, since Madonna does all that because of her humanitarian leanings, so they better make do with what she can offer for now. Like the Nigerian pidgin saying goes..."At all at all na im bad pass"

It is actually a mark of respect to pen out a letter rather than having it written by somebody. If the letter is ridden with grammatical errors, Ms banda should realize that Madonna is not known for her scholastic achievement. If you asked Britney spears, Beyonce, or whichever us pop stars to pen a letter that is probably what you should expect. Most of them entere entertainment before they finish high school and feel so entitled that they don't feel the need to pursue any additional education.
As for the classes VS the school building, it is a ridiculous critique. I rather have many school benefiting of classrooms than her building a single academy where only a handful of students will have access to quality infrastructure like it is the case with the Oprah academy in SA. If Banda wants schools, she can build them not chastise somebody for not building schools in malawi with her personal money.

I am no big fan of Madonna, but apart from a couple of misspellings, and not the best writing in the world or paper, I don't see anything wrong with what she wrote - her actual words.
If the President is offended because of the reasons above, then SHE does not have the best interests of the children of Malawi at heart, as those things are really irrelevant in the bigger picture.
How many international pop stars will of their own volition, and not just because of publicity, do as Madonna has because of the love she has for her adopted children, Mercy and David? And if she builds classroom's here and there, with HER own money as opposed to a school, is it not better than nothing? How many others have?
Who can say what else she will do or plans to do in the future?
People are just generally ungrateful and very greedy, when they will die first before they put their hands in their OWN pockets! Abeg leave Madonna o jare,GO DO SOMETHING FOR ANOTHER FIRST, BEFORE YOU TALK!!

D paper dou was rough even for an informal letter but I don't sEe is as rude.

And I appreciate the fact she is monitoring d project herself and not handing the money over to some hungry govt officials, who might divert funds to their pockets, and use stipends for the schools development.
And from the looks of that paper I believe there was a seal on that shredded part, which must hav been taken out for one reason or the other, to cut the whole long story short, madam president stop being an ingrate, madonna abeg come nigeria to oh, help our country, our politicians are to busy stealing funds, or promoting some rich artists, by making them richer, u know wat I mean.

Hmmm, guys, there's such a thing as a personal letter. Too bad her handwriting sucks, but don't we all love autographs? By the way, it's only in Nigeria that we have pointless prefixes for names or every other thing at that. Besides, her letter was polite enough!

Madonna and other celebrities should stop doing charity in Africa and Asia. Blacks and Hispanics need help in the U.S. There is poverty and unemployment in the black communities in the U.S. It is annoying! Americans will appreciate any assistance. Charity begins at home. Madonna, please bring your charity to the black communities in the U.S. African-Americans need better schools or scholarships to colleges. Most historical black colleges need funds! You can see from most of the comments that Africans are ungrateful and not humble. God bless you Madonna.Thank you for building classrooms in Malawi.

Tell it to the children of Malawi that their president rejected the building of classrooms for them because the letter written to her was on ugly paper and was not formal. Talk about getting satisfied and full of yourself! Perfect example that you shouldnt expect any better just because the leader is a woman. Human nature takes over and soon they too are just full of themselves. Sic

Point of Correction : It is not a rough paper,you can see her name pre-printed on it. These are kind of notes that are made for top people just to distinguish the note actually came from them,some of these notes have special security on the prints.

I see no big deal with addressing her as Joyce,it is her name and we all don't know the kind of relationship between the two.

Lastly,if she planned to build a school and she changed her mind to build classroom,none of us here know why that changed so,IS IT YOUR MONEY?

Slinky said...

I agree with u no 2. really pathetic

Anonymous said...

efezzy... is image so important that a few more classrooms for children in a poor country would be rejected? Whats with the foolish pride. The damn letter was even on her letterhead as obviated by the stamp...so probably everybody gets mail from Madonna like that. Your children have no schools but you reject help because its not formal.... How stupid can a president get?

If it was president Obama she was writing to, would she write it on such rough paper, and bad writing? This is not good enough. Whether or not she is building schools in Malawi.

I agree d paper really isn't nyc, buh seriously how many Americans actually do hnd written dys dayz?? D preside t iz jst being paranoid cos madonna owes er n er country notin. She won't write a letter to obama like dah cos obama commads respect. African leader wot do they comand???? Nada so abeg all of una wa da curse d woman una da mad.

So we are back to that African mentality again...It should be a great honour to have a letter hand-written to the president, and calling people by their first names is what the western world see as acceptance, reverence and warmth. I still struggle with that here cos people go out of their way to know what your first name is and to address you by that in the workplace, just so you feel welcomed and to help everyone work in concert. Madonna must have been smilin while writin this not knowin she wl be met by much criticisms. Pls Africa move on...the world has gone past all that. I know i still struggle here to call my consultants by their first name in the hospital to their face, have dem make me tea or coffee or do stuffs for me, considering how i was almost bowing in awe just to speak to my connsultants in Lagos...believe you me, i av learnt more relatin with dem 'informally' when compared to all the 'eye-service' and show of superiority we do in naija...#somuchfor'respect'.

U da mad p, hw many nija celeb don do watin madonna da do. Non of our celebs. Ve goin to oda African contries to xecut dah kinda project. Una c American wa da hlp instead of being gratful una da yan shit.

WE AFRICANS....CHAI!!! Madonna should use the money to build a school for herself so she can learn how to spell and write a formal letter...She is the malawi president for fuck sake...Would she write this kind of letter to Obama....Did Malawi president beg her for money..

A lot of comments here reflects vividly the blackman's siege mentality, a serious complex that puts us always auto-defensive mode, a foolish sense of entitlement
First, the letter was an informal letter ostensibly written to a person she considers a friend
The publication of the letter was in bad taste and faith, the intent was clearly to embarrass the pop star
I do not for a second believe the letter was torn and crumpled when sent and even if it was , the tone of the message was friendly and cordial, and that to me should be more important .

Hian.. Can u imagine? So its now by force for Madonna to build skools for Malawians? Abeg, a promise made is not a debt owed o... Hmmm, Africa's mentality, I tire.

Its not a rude letter just that she could have done well with the material....She is the material girl, i forgive her mis-spellings but hey she should know that packaging matters.

@Ayomide Olugbenga and co taking sides with Madonna how would you feel if anyone wrote you a letter on such dirty material?have a bit of sense will ya?

@ chamilah - please look up the difference between a formal and informal letter before you start screaming disrespect.

@efezzy - please look up the definition of lesbianism. Kindly note that your caustic tongue is not exactly uplifting the african image *insert sarcastic look*

Madonna doesn't owe Malawi any favours, the moment Africans stop relying on handouts, the sooner we'd become self reliant.....by Grown Up Girl

must opine that someone must ve tampered with the piece of paper just to get madonna denigrated.Madonna is munificent which xplains why she chose to xpend her hard earned money on a people writhing in penuary..the president rather than lambaste madonna for reneging on a promise should be thankful that sb is atleast helping her govt to ameliorate the plights of her people..show some gratitude president joyce !

Dear Joyce
First and foremost let me congratulate you on your new position in office in malawi! What an honour and what a huge responsibility! I have always admire your strength and courage and have really good memories of when we met and spoke and we interviewed you for documentary.
As you know I am in malawi for the week,if you have anytime in your really busy schedule that would be great if not just know I am here to be of service and continue to do what I can to support the children in malawi! If there is a project you can think of that we can join efforts do let me know! wish you the very best!!!
Best of luck to you
Warm regards
And great respect
PS:she wasn't disrespectful in anyway,d president shuld go nd sleep!
