Legendary Senegalese singer is humbled

A 30-year-old Malian man has walked from his village of Kita to Dakar, simply to meet Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour. According to the BBC News, Sekou Cisse, who says he is fond of N’Dour’s music and voice, said, “I left my village and went to the city of Kayes. There I went to the Senegalese consular services to let them know about my intentions.”


“I have received a lot of visitors, but this is the first time someone walks 900km,” commented N’Dour.
