African-American Singer Akon opens university in Africa to help students, set to name it after Michael Jackson

Akon, an African-American singer who performs under the stage name Aliaune Damala Badara, has decided to establish schools in Africa after admitting that he and the late Michael Jackson had intended to work on the initiative together.

Akon claimed that he and Michael Jackson had lofty ambitions to work together extraordinarily to benefit African pupils. He characterized the late Michael Jackson as a kind man who was passionate about aiding African children but who was unable to grant some of his wishes before to his passing.

“Mike was just an amazing person man, I wish people had a chance to understand and really experience the person the way I did,” said Akon during an interview with HipHopDX.

“We had like a good two years together where we just hung out practically four, five times a week, right? Real conversations and he would shock you, the kind of shit that he like, the kind of shit he would say,” Akon told the outlet.
He explained that because he became famous at the young age of eight, Michael Jackson never really had a childhood and always wanted to help African youngsters succeed in life.
“His biggest thing was always making sure that kids were in a comfortable position to be a kid. Because he never really had a childhood himself,” Akon stated.
“He was a big star as a child. He didn’t get a chance to go to the carnival, go to the movies, eat candy, like things that kids naturally did so when he got older, he surrounded himself with all those kiddish things that he never had a chance to be at,” he added.
