You have to hand it to Bono, he'll go anywhere and meet anyone to promote his campaign to fight AIDS and poverty in Africa.

He's a man on a 25 year mission. That's why he when the press heard the U2 frontman spent Saturday night having dinner with a banker no one assumed he was selling out.

The former Nigerian finance minister met with Bono and his wife Ali to discuss Bono's wildly successful ONE campaign which is attempting to fight poverty in Africa.

Stopping off in Ireland on Saturday the World Bank head was accompanied by five staff at the dinner with Bono and wife Ali Hewson in the swanky Cliff Town House on Saint Stephen's Green in the heart of Dublin.

Doubtless the U2 frontman strong armed her for her assistance in the same polite but effective way he has charmed world leaders for the past 25 years.
