Akon likes to give hot-button takes, like when he defended Kanye West after Ye made all of those anti-Semitic remarks. Akon also supported Nick Cannon's decision to father a bunch of children with different women.
One of the singer's latest controversial opinions came when he said that African artists are better performers than American artists.
"We’re a little different when it comes to stage presence," said Akon about African artists. "[American artists are seen on stage] wobbling, pants hanging half down, bored as hell, half asleep ‘cause they high as hell on stage. But [in] Africa, we wake up in the morning, like, look at these YouTube clips of all these kids from Uganda. Like these kids are performers. So for us, it comes natural.”
