Why? Let's find out!

Akon's Family and childhood

Both of his parents are working in the field of art with his mother, Gueye Kin Thiam, being a dancer, and his father, Mor Thiam, a popular Jazz musician. It is understandable that Akon's music ability was somehow inspired by a family that has instilled music into their tradition.

In New Jersey where he was growing up as a teenager, Akon started singing and performing?

Akon embarked on performing at a tender age as a teenager who started in New Jersey, which affected his decision to drop out of Clarke Atlanta University right in the first semester to pursue a career in music. This decision nurtured his music business when more and more home recordings were produced and well-received.

2. Music and Collaboration

Akon got his record label in 2003 and has released so many albums since then having R&B style vocals with hip-hop beats.

His career started to bloom in 2003 meeting his friend and later mentor, Devyne Stephens. Stephens later helped the African-American singer produce his songs which got widely praised with hit tracks such as Lonely, and Ghetto. This is the foundation for a young artist who went on to be featured in more than 300 songs.

Ones of his most famous collaborations that can be named are with stars like Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Gwen Stefanie, and Snoop Dogg. Akon launched the debut album “Trouble” in 2004 which included “Lonely” and “Locked up” hit tracks; these were money magnet songs.

Besides, the rapper takes up the roles of a producer and songwriter too. His label has helped many artists like Lady Gaga, T-Pain, Kardinall Offishall, R.City and a few others on the way to becoming their finest pieces.

Notable achievements

If you have to name a song the reminder of his success, it is "Lonely" which is the biggest hit along with "Locked up" in his debut album "Trouble" in 2004.

Aside from that, tracks like “Gunshot” which sold more than 1.9 million copies around the world should be in the mention too, and please remember this was a promotional single track in 2001.

He had his second album released in 2006; “Konvicted”, as it was named became another wonder to behold which stayed on the top of music charts. Many tracks in this album were hit songs of its time and could keep the fans jamming till the next album.

The year 2008 saw another album named “Freedom”; a name which was given after a prior name “Acquitted”.

Why should we call Akon a superstar? It's because the hip-hop artist has won up to 36 awards including “Artist of the Year”, “Producer of the Year”, “World Best Selling Artist” in different categories, and been a five-time nominee of the Grammy Awards.

3. Akon's net worth

Akon does not only make money from singing alone but owns a real estate investment, his label Konvicted, Aliaune clothing lines, and also the Confident Foundation with a mission to empower disadvantaged youth in the US and Africa.
