Her sparkling, soulful voice has produced countless hits in all genres, from pop and R&B to hip hop and dance.
In addition to her chart-dominating singles "Smack That" and "I Wanna Love You", she has made no less than 300 guest appearances for icons such as Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Lil Wayne, R. Kelly and Eminem.
With over 35 million albums sold worldwide, five Grammy Award nominations and 45 Billboard Hot 100 tracks to his credit, he is simply unstoppable.
Expanding further into other realms, Akon was recognised on Forbes Magazine's Celebrity 100 list in 2010 and Pepsi chose him to produce and record 'Oh Africa' for the 2010 World Cup. For the first time in history, the event took place in Africa, the continent where the artist was born.
With a heart even bigger than his CV, Akon also set up The Konfidence Foundation, a youth-focused charity that helps underprivileged children in Africa and the US. Everything he does remains emblematic of his passion.
In February 2014, Akon launched a partnership to bring electricity to one million households in Africa by the end of 2014. Akon has chosen to respond to the immediate needs of Africans through an effort known as 'Akon Lighting Africa'.
This initiative will address the concern that more than two-thirds of the population of sub-Saharan Africa is without electricity and that more than 85 per cent of those living in rural areas lack access.
Akon Corp, in collaboration with GIVE1 PROJECT and Solektra International, a member of ADS Group (Africa Development Solutions Group), has brought together a dynamic group of strategic partners to create replicable, scalable and cost-effective energy solutions.
