Rapper Akon just threw his hat in the ring - he plans on running for President in 2020.

The rapper, whose real name is Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, plans on making the announcement any day now.

We know what you're thinking - is he even American? The answer is yes. While Akon's family is African - the rapper was born in St Louis, Missouri - which makes his Constitutionally eligible to be president.

Akon's people told media that the rapper/philanthropist has been following through on social, economic and charitable projects both in America and Africa.


And now Akon has reportedly put together an exploratory committee  for his potential  run for the US Presidency in 2020. 

And Akon is already on the attack. Yesterday he attacked the Orange Emperor Trump for his Presidency of fear, bigotry, hate and racism.

According to Akon, the president has been working to intentionally divide the races, he told media that the country needs a uniter.
