The singer made this interesting revelation during an interview with American radio show “The Breakfast Club” while speaking about Afrobeats and his involvement in the revolution of African music.
According to Akon, he has groomed several African artistes even though he does not get enough credit for that and further revealed that he signed Davido, Wizkid and PSquare in the year 2011 when they were just upcoming artistes.
Unfortunately, nothing was written on paper hence the artistes were not able to honour the deal.
The Konvict Music boss also revealed in the interview that he currently has Nigerian rapper Olamide on his record label.
Olamide is yet to confirm this story as he is also a record label owner with several artistes under his YBNL label.
''Right now I am focused on two major artistes...one is June Freedom , he is based out of Los Angeles but he is from Cape Verde in Africa and the other one is Olamide he is actually from Nigeria ...So we just picked him up'' Akon said in an interview with American radio show “The Breakfast Club” while speaking about Afrobeats.
