The well-known for his activist action singer of U2, Bono, visited a refugee camp in Turkey.

The young refugees had a surprise for Bono, as they sang to him and he on his part reciprocated by sending the message that “the rock star, before becoming a rock star, is a man of the next door”.

Bono, who was admitted and by Ahmet Davutoglu in Cankaya Palace in Ankara, said: “I am impressed by the generosity of the Turkish people. It’s amazing. This is a lesson in politeness”, the frontman of U2 said immediately after the meeting.

It is not the first time that Bono refers to the refugee crisis, a few months ago in a concert in Turin, referring to young Ailan, he had paraphrased the lyrics of “Pride”, singing of “a boy who was found dead on an empty beach”.
