Akon has been doing great things around the world with his philanthropy around the world and successful businessman. After all, this is the man who initially discovered Lady Gaga. He’s also ventured into the cryptocurrency craze, launching Akoin this year. Over the years the grammy award winner has shifted his focus to changing the world. Now Akon has his eyes set on becoming the next President of the United States.
In the last few years, Akon has shifted his focus to bettering the world, doing most of his work in Africa. He is now eyeing a potential run for the 2020 presidency. He spoke with Newsweek about facing off against Donald Trump, saying, “I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously. But I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people] to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.’”
He has said that Donald Trump’s stance on a lot of things has him concerned about the future of the country. “I feel a lot more unsafe,” he said. “I feel unempowered. Honestly, I feel it’s gonna be a fight. I feel like I should be always prepared for the unexpected. I feel very uncomfortable.”
Would you be down with Akon as the President of the United States? Unfortunately he might have the odds stacked against him especially with his criminal past, but hey Trump won with all of his scandals to who knows.
