Respected African singer, Akon has made claims that some African musicians like Wizkid, Davido, and Psquare are richer than most American rappers.
The famed ‘Freedom’ speaker who was speaking at a summit for youths revealed that most extravagances noticed in American hip hop videos were fake.
Akon 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.”
