On a recent trip to Ghana locals thought One Direction were Westlife. They may have conquered both Europe and America, but One Direction have learned they have a long way to go before they reach world domination.
The confusion happened on a recent trip to Africa by Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson to film their new music video.
The singers witnessed poverty firsthand as they visited schools and slums, but Payne admits there was also a light-hearted moment when a group of youngsters confused them for another boy band.
Payne told the Daily Mirror: "In the slum 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..."
The lads have recorded a cover or Blondie’s One Way or Another and all proceeds from the track will be donated to Comic Relief. Horan said: "We didn't want to make a massive expensive video because that's just a waste of money. So we kinda made it ourselves."
Tomlinson add: "By buying the song, together we'll change people's lives. What an amazing thing to do. Buy music that you like and change lives."
