Rapper Akon made news years back when he told interviewers that he believes in polygamy, telling reporters that “I can afford to have as many wives as I can afford to have.”
Over the years FOUR women have been referred to at one time or another as Akon’s “wife.” It’s not clear to us that Akon has divorced ANY of those women.
Even if he hasn't divorced any, he's reportedly worth a mega $80 million dollars, which is more than enough to keep his harem happy!
Several years back, Akon all but disappeared from the spotlight. He then revealed that he would be teaming up with community leader Thione Niang and entrepreneur Samba Bathily to create and build Akon Lighting Africa.
The initiative which aims to provide Africans with electricity which would, not otherwise have access - has delivered 100,000 solar street lamps across 480 communities in 15 countries. It has also installed over 1,200 solar micro-grids, creating thousands of jobs within those communities including Akon's group has operations in 11 countries including Guinea, Senegal, Mali, Niger, Benin and Sierra Leone.
He's a hard-working man, and his good works are not championed enough. But he makes sure that his personal life remains lit at all times, landing wife after wife. As long as it's legal where he is (and it is), then nobody should have any complaints
Now here comes NUMBER FIVE. Akon and his new fiance were spotted out yesterday having a romantic PRE-PRE-Valentines dinner.
We imagine that with Valentine’s Day just a day away, Akon is busy . . .
