  One Direction have travelled to Ghana for Red Nose Day.

The boyband went to the capital Accra to meet people in poverty who receive donations and support from Comic Relief.

Harry Styles wrote of the experience: "Today was the most amazing day I've had so far... In my life ever....@rednoseday Thank you so much for having us. It was amazing and we'll see you soon."

Niall Horan wrote: "I've seen the slums right in front of me! This is no joke! They really need your help! Poverty is real

"Massive thanks to @rednoseday for taking us to Ghana! It was incredible! real eye opener! We take so much for granted over here!"

The Daily Mirror said that the boys jetted out to Africa on Saturday to meet local people living in poor conditions.

Footage from the chart-toppers' visit will form the video for their charity cover of Blondie's One Way Or Another, to be released at the end of the month.

There is a huge difference between poverty in the UK and in a 3rd world country. Seeing it firsthand is also an entirely different experience. Idk why people are so hard on him; obviously he's not a Rhoades scholar, but ANYONE would go to a poverty-striken place and feel shell-shocked.
