AKON IS PONDERING A 2024 PRESIDENTIAL RUN—DOESN’T SEE KANYE WEST AS HIS COMPETITION
Tuesday, Nov 19, 2019
Akon has his eyes set on the White House! The “Locked Up” singer was asked on The Real if he had plans to run for president in 2024 and he said “that might be possible.” Feeling like he “can take the country and move it forward,” he talked about his current hand in politics and how he’s currently advising 30 African presidents. Jesus is King rapper Kanye West has also discussed plans to run for the 2024 presidency, but Akon doesn’t see him as competition at all—the complete opposite actually. “I honestly need him to run” because “it’s great for the culture” Akon revealed about Yeezy being his potential opponent. He also added that from a spiritual standpoint, he doesn’t think Kanye is crazy at all—just simply awakened.
