Must watch. Akon is stepping up plate and putting these African governments to shame who by way of white supremacy have left their people in the dark ages while Europeans and the Chinese suck the country of its resources.
Edit: Much props to the beautiful interviewer who didn’t give Akon any softballs during this chat and called him on various subjects including his lyrical content which many have deemed dehumanizing to women.
The Senegalese-American recording artist talks frankly about US race relations, “rebranding” Africa, and his music.
Akon talks to Al Jazeera about running his musical career as a business; his projects – both philanthropic and artistic; singing songs for peace and whether he thinks it can really make an impact; and being an African in the US.
