Award winning singer,Akon has said that Wizkid, Davido and Psquare are richer than most American hip-hop artistes.
The talented entertainer made this known via a viral video while speaking at a summit for young people.
Akon noted that the glamorous lifestyle seen in most American hip-hop videos were actually false, adding that such music videos which show foreign musicians living large lifestyle with Bentley is actually the opposite of the reality compared to African artistes.
According to him, Wizkid, Davido and Psquare are wealthier than most American rappers .
Akon said: “Hip-hop in America, every rapper is rich with Gold chains, girls by the pool in big mansion but when the video is over they get on a phone and call a uber.
“But if you go to Nigeria you have Wizkid, Davido, P-square driving Bentley, Mercedes Benz they actually own those cars. That’s the difference but if we don’t translate that, they would never know.
“The images they show about Africa are so negative. It’s conditioning what we believe. Africa has a rich story too. More people died in Chicago, more school shootings in America.”
