Akon refuses to deny or confirm claims that he lied about living a life of crime:
“‘We’re doing so many positive things. To go back and focus and put energy on negative things like that, to try to discredit an artist, it makes no sense to me. If there was a motive for it, it would be worth entertaining. I’d rather keep it the way it is and leave the article out there. It only helps me. It’s not something I was trying to glorify or turn back to. It was something I was trying to forget. Actually, it worked out for me in a positive way.’”
Whatever works, right Akon? Just like enforcing “Konvict” stereotypes about black men and crime worked out in a “positive way” for your career. SMH.
