Akon has revealed his plans to run for the 2024 US president during his interview with the ladies of The Real.
Akon believes he has a background that qualifies him for the position and so he is ready to run for the US president 2024.
Akon recently sat down with the ladies of daytime talk show The Real to discuss his political aspirations and he had this to say;
“I know what the issues are, and as a person, as an immigrant, as a black man, as whatever you want to call it. I kind of know or feel like I know that I can take the country and move it forward.” He then went on to talk about how he is currently advising 30 African presidents, and how it is based on the development of the youth.
For years Akon has been helping to revitalize and empower many African nations through his Akon Lighting Africa initiative which has been providing electricity by solar energy to many African countries, including Guinea, Senegal, Mali, Niger, Benin and Sierra Leone, so his leadership qualities are already intact. He’s also provided aid to political powerhouses throughout the African continent.
