Akon has stated that he has Invested over $1 Billion in China over Electricity. In his remarks, here is what he has to say;
Africa lacks electricity, water, basic infrastructure, there is a lot of progress to be made. And you see the misery, you just want to help, it's no longer a frenzy, I'm not wearing jewelry anymore.
I saw so many people in need, until I feel guilty when I visit Villages putting on earrings that cost 50,000 dollars is useless.
It's just the pat in the eye that only serves to make the beauty in front of others.That's why I decided to use my money to help others.
