Akon says some Nigerian artistes richer than American musiciansSENEGALESE-American artiste, Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, otherwise called Akon, has said despite the clout of American musicians, some of their counterparts in Africa are actually richer than most of them.

While speaking at a summit for youth, Akon named P-Square, Wizkid and Davido, as Nigerian musicians whose wealth can match up to some Hip-Hop artistes.

According to him, the glamorous lifestyle seen in American hip-hop videos are actually fake.

Akon added that such music videos which show a musician living large with Bentley and pretty women is actually the opposite of reality.

He is quoted to have said: “Hip-hop in America, every rapper is rich with Gold chains, girls by the pool in big mansion but when the video is over they get on a phone and call a uber.

“But if you go to Nigeria you have Wizkid, Davido, P-square driving Bentley, Mercedes Benz they actually own those cars. That’s the difference but if we don’t translate that, they would never know.

“The images they show about Africa are so negative. It’s conditioning what we believe. Africa has a rich story too. More people died in Chicago, more school shootings in America.”
