Akon: Why I haven’t worked with any Kenyan artiste


Award-winning international artiste Akon clarified that no Kenyan artiste has approached him for a collabo the five times he has been to the capital this year. “I have come here mostly for my projects about solar power solutions for slums, but it is unfortunate that I have not had time to work with a Kenyan artiste,” Akon told MondayBlues.

“But I am only one person (celebrity) among millions. If only African artistes can raise the standards. Artistes need to also make an effort in challenging me to work with them,” he said, clearing rumours by some stars that he is not interested in working with them.
