Rabat – Madonna seemed to have a blast during her stay in Marrakech to celebrate her 60th birthday and thanked “magical Morocco” for hosting.
The queen of pop appeared to have fallen in love with the red city where she made new memories celebrating her birthday, on Thursday, August 16, with all her friends and family.
Madonna did not want her fans to miss out on her activities. In the last several days, the singer has shared pictures and videos revealing what she was up to since she landed in Morocco last week.
Her fans were able to witness their icon’s walk through the streets of Marrakech’s medina (old city) at the time of the call to prayer and her visit to the souks. Thursday evening and Friday she posted three different pictures of herself wearing a pink Amazigh (Berber) style dress and Amazigh jewellery.
The diva chose Marrakech’s luxurious Riad El Fenn, owned by Vanessa Branson—sister to the Virgin Group’s Richard Branson, as the location for her birthday party. The private ceremony took place on its terrace, where guests enjoyed a view over Koutoubia Mosque.
Madonna and her guests, including American actress Debi Mazar, continued their celebration in the Agafay desert where a Fantasia show was waiting for them.
The iconic singer had shared a number of pictures of herself in Amazigh style and of her “memorable and magical birthday week” with her fans on social media.
“Most memorable and magical birthday week! Thank you to all who helped make it happen! To all good wishes from around the world and to magical Morocco for hosting us,” wrote the singer.
