Where do people live in the Sahara Desert?
Most of those who live in countries covered by the Sahara Desert
live in North Africa along or near the Mediterranean
Most people in the Sahara desert live near the Nile River because it is one of the only reliable water sources.
That depends what you mean by famous people. The Tuareg people live in the desert and are famous in movies, and monks/nuns of some religions live by themselves in the Sahara as a vow of silence. But no, pop-stars, classical music composers, and Harrison Ford (Prince of Persia) do not usually live in the desert.
