Akon

Bio

Brought up in a family of musicians, Akon spent his early childhood in Senegal before leaving at the age of seven to live in the US in Union City, New Jersey. A Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Akon is one of the world's most influential voices in music today. In addition to having two multi-platinum albums, Akon has had 27 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the first artist to accomplish the feat of holding both the number one and two spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice.

Akon is an established bona-fide global superstar. The US-born Senegalese artist has sold over 35 Million albums worldwide, received five Grammy nominations and collaborated with an array of A-list artists from many genres including Lady GaGa, Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Daddy Yankee, Lil’ Wayne, Michael Jackson, Snoop Dogg and many more.

Akon’s global vision is rooted in music, but has expanded to include renewable energy. His Lighting Africa initiative put him at the forefront of the Sustainability Movement, an issue that profoundly affects citizens all over the world. This platform has given Akon a global stage as a multi-dimensional philanthropist, global entertainer and, in his own words, “a social entrepreneur.”

Akon founded the Akonik Label Group, a recording stable distributed by BMG. The unprecedented artist-founded label group is comprised of four distinct record labels: Akonda (Afrobeats), Akonik (U.S.), Jamakon (Caribbean) and Ke Lo Ke (Latin America). This is the first time an artist has established a global record label group dedicated to multiple genres.
