Multiple award-winning Senegalese-American musician, Akon has revealed his intentions of venturing into politics.
The American superstar, in an interview with Joy News, said he thought politics wasn’t for everyone and that he told himself he was never going to do politics.
He, however, said that the more he got involved in politics, talking to other presidents, the more he realised how much the energy of people like him is needed in politics.
“A lot of things we want to change, a lot of things we want to happen differently but it can’t happen if we are not in there or part of making that change,” he stated.
“You have got to be in the politics, you have got to be in the room when decisions are being made to make a difference so I realised that. I think my future priority will be politics eventually,” he added.
