Akon thinks that the rich and famous have more problems than the poor.
Akon was asked about Michael K. Williams' death.
"There's just too many of us going down like that and I think when moments like this happen we all gotta reflect, cause we're all going through things in our lives…and making decisions that actually affect not only us and our life but everyone that surrounds and looks up to us," Akon said. "The famous and the rich go through more issues than the poor. You know when they say 'More money, more problems,' that's a real thing."
He continued, "You know, this business creates this, like, environment where everyone's wearing a mask, no one tells you what's really going on in your life, so real friends can't even really advise you cause we don't really know what's happening cause we put on this facade of success but yet behind the face there's so much happening."
