During President Obama’s first-ever U.S.-Africa Summit, Akon, a five-time Grammy nominated artist and philanthropist, convened the first annual “Africa: New Partnership Models for Growth Conference,” August 7, 2014. Featuring African Heads of State, including those from Guinea, Kenya, Congo, and Ghana, this international conference gave the next generation of African leaders from all sectors of activity a platform and opportunity to directly exchange with African decision-makers, business leaders, civil society representatives, opinion leaders, athletes, artists, and celebrities.
Here, Akon discusses the results of the conference at a National Press Club Newsmaker event August 7th, 2014.

Akon is the perfect person. He has the knowledge of having lived in Africa and in America and he knows both perspectives.

Why would someone dislike this video? You would really have to be the lowest of the low to dislike what Akon is trying to do for Africa.
