If African-Americans returned to Africa, in Akon’s opinion, it might become the strongest country in the world, and he is working to make that happen.
During a recently trending interview with REVOLT’s Deposit$ podcast, the “Locked Up” singer made his plans apparent. Akon stated in the video that all the resources are already on the continent; all they lack are people.
“My goal is to get everybody to move back to Africa. That’s my goal,” he said. “I wanna get as many African-Americans back home to Africa as I possibly can, because I know the day they move back, everything they fighting for in America – they will not have to fight for over there.
“All the struggle that they struggled [in America] … they gon’ come there with this mindset, with this mentality, with the finances that they built, the equity in life and bring it back and invest that in Africa?”
He continued: “Man, Africa could be the strongest nation in the world if y’all went back home. Because we got everything that it takes to be that. We got the resources, we got the land, we got the population. And together we got the strength and we got the know-how. Like why we ain’t doing that?”
As 2022 came to a close, the singer came under fire after he claimed that African performers were better than their American counterparts.
