The 44-year-old singer had retired from the music business a few years ago to use his fame for humanitarian causes.
Some parts of Africa lack infrastructure, water and electricity. Of Senegalese origin, the artist has not forgotten where he came from. And for good reason, he is setting up a project worthy of his talent. His project? to help 600 million African households without electricity.
In just 2 years, Akon has succeeded in meeting this enormous challenge, equipping homes, schools and villages with solar panels and other structures. But he hasn't put aside his first love: music. Akon is back with a new Afro-pop track, colorful and rhythmic to the delight of our ears. We'll never tire of his distinctive voice, which has made us dance or cry.
We all remember songs like Smack That, Right now, Lonely and Don't Matter.
Between producer, singer and humanitarian, Akon is more than just an artist; he's an entrepreneur who doesn't hesitate to help others. Values we appreciate and value at Projet X Paris.
And for good reason: for his "Yes" video, Akon didn't hesitate to call on our stylists to make him a cosy but trendy outfit. The black velvet ensemble enhances her complexion. We love it!
