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.”

How would you respond to Akon if given the chance?
