WESTLIFE OVER ONE DIRECTION?
In 2013 popular boy band, One Direction traveled to Africa to record a charity single. However, they were left redfaced when the locals mistook them for the former Irish pop band, Westlife. “There were these lads that we were playing football with. They turned around to us and were like, ‘Ah, Westlife, Westlife!’ So, Westlife are bigger than us over there. That’s something we’ve gotta achieve...,” Liam Payne was quoted as saying by a British tabloid.
