Looks like Akon may be the solution to NEPA/PHCN & our incessant power supply issues in Nigeria!

The Senegalese/American music star recently announced that he would be launching a Solar Academy in Bamako, Mali.

The Academy will train local African engineers and entrepreneurs in order to teach them how to produce solar power. The initiative, called “Akon Lighting Africa,” aims to bring solar power to over 600 million Africans.

While some European experts will be there to provide supplies and training, Akon, who is Senegalese-American, wants this to be a project firmly rooted in Africa. The Academy is expected to launch later this summer.

Sina Rambo who is Davido‘s cousin & also an artiste on his label – HKN Music, must have found what Bu wrote about Wizkid very funny because he replied to the pic with an “LMAO”

And that’s when all hell broke loose as Wizzy fans abused him from here to the end of the earth!

Akon feels the mega-couple always presented their relationship to the public as more of a business than a real relationship. He says famous people need to be open with their fans about their relationships or else they invite the kind of rumors that have dogged Jay Z and Beyonce lately.
