American music superstar, Akon, has hinted that Psquare, Wizkid and Davido are richer than most American hip-hop artistes.
He made this known in a viral video while speaking at a summit for youths.
The musician who has been doing aggressive rebranding for Africa across the globe is not one to rest on his laurels. He believes Africa is by far much greater than what’s being projected.
Akon revealed that the glamorous lifestyle seen in most American hip-hop videos were actually fake, adding that such music videos which show foreign musicians living lavish lifestyle with some of the world’s most expensive automobiles is actually the opposite of reality compared to African artistes.
According to him, Wizkid, Psquare, and Davido are richer than most American rappers in reality.
Akon said: “Hip-hop in America, every rapper is rich with gold chains, girls by the pool in big mansion, but when the video is over they get on a phone and call an Uber driver.
But if you go to Nigeria you have Wizkid, Davido, P-square driving Bentley, Mercedes Benz they actually own those cars. That’s the difference, but if we don’t transmit that to the rest of the world, they would never know. The images they show about Africa are so negative. It’s conditioning what we believe. Africa has a rich story too. More people died in Chicago, more school shootings in America.”
