U2 frontman Bono is trying to get David Bowie's model wife Iman a job - helping him with his charity work in Africa.

Somalian born Iman is determined to lend a hand to her Aids-stricken home continent, and Irish singer Bono - well known for his humanitarian activism - is trying to find her the perfect outlet after discovering her immense fame in Africa.

Iman says, "Bono has really achieved a lot. Actually, he's trying to find me a job.

"He says that on his travels in Africa he was trying to find out which people Africans know and respond to. He said, 'It wasn't a politician, it wasn't a president, it was you.'

"So he wants to put me to work. I said I was open to that."
