The singer is currently living in Lisbon, Portugal for her 12-year-old son David to attend the youth academy of the famous Portuguese soccer club Benfica.

The Like a Prayer hitmaker’s plans were embraced by the officials at the national soccer association. They even offered land for the construction of the academy.
Malawi Football Association’s president Walter Nyamilandu revealed that the association is very excited for this opportunity as it will complement their efforts to establish football academies in the country.
For David, this is a dream come true. He is very eager and is hoping to raise the profile of soccer Malawi and also wants to help the national team reach the global stage.
