Video: Akon Speaks On Trying To Light A Million Homes In Africa

Written by Nigel D. / 04.23.14

Akon talks about lighting up a million homes in Africa by the end of 2014, Fame not getting to his head, the waves in hair, his biggest misconception & much more!

Akon, in partnership with Give1Project and ADS Global Corporation SA, has initiated the project “Akon Lighting Africa Project” tour which aims to bring electricity to one (1) million households in Africa by the end of 2014. The lack of electricity is currently a major problem in Africa. A significant number of households in rural areas and even urban cities do not have access to electricity. This is a real obstacle to Africa’s Sustainable Development.
