    Akon: Afro-Americans Should Invest In Africa

    Akon Thiam is a Senegalese-American singer, songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and actor.

    Africa is the Future, African-Americans should invest in the African continent!

    “When you combine African-Americans and diaspora Africans, that unity itself is what’s gonna make Wakanda actually possible.” Akon said this in his single “Locked Up,” Akon was determined not to be your run-of-the-mill one-hit-wonder.

    Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, an international artist, and producer had some foresight, understanding that the shelf life of an artist in a super-fickled entertainment industry is fleeting. So in the early 2000s the Senegalese-American rapper decided to invest in Africa.

    Today, the 46-year-old has his hand in a bevy of investments—notably, his energy company, Akon Lighting Africa; the Akonik Label Group and his forthcoming crypto city—powered by the businessman’s very own cryptocurrency, the Akoin. We call this a light flex. So, it might be fair to say that Akon is giving T’Challa a run for his money.

    What do y’all think? “Africa’s economic potential, I think, is to the roof. I think Africa is not only the future, but it has been the past for everybody,” Akon told The Root. Watch the artist and entrepreneur breakdown why African-Americans should invest in Africa. See the entire video above.
