In an interview, he talked about how he is not in the best state. He said: “I had a bad start to the day, I’ve been having seizures now for like six months, and right before that my daughter was sick with pneumonia.”
How the Rumor Spread?
The rumors that Akon is dead started because of a fake news article. The article posted on the website, Global Associated News (GNA), reports that he died in a car crash and quotes his wife as saying: “Akon was such an amazing man.”
GNA also reported that singer Nicki Minaj had been arrested for drug possession in Las Vegas and killed herself shortly after hearing about her husband’s death.
It appears to be just another fake news site with false information meant to trick people into clicking onto it and generating revenue through ads.
There were some other reasons also. When his latest album was released, all the rumors turned end.
Akon’s Early Life
He was born in Missouri on April 17, 1973. Akon grew up in Senegal until he was eight years old when his family relocated to the US state of New Jersey after a coup d’état broke out back home.
In 1990, at age 17 Akon went solo with his first single “Locked Up” being released by Wild Pitch Records from Atlanta Georgia before signing onto Universal Music Group’s major label Island Def Jam Recordings where he would find success as both a recording artist and businessman over the next decade.
In 1996 Akon became one half of Da Gutta Boyz (alongside Big Gee) who recorded their first demo.
At the last of twenty century, he teamed up with DJ Kurtis Damm to form a group called Da Slickness and they released their debut single “Murder She Wrote”. It became the most requested record on New York’s Hot 97 radio station at the time.
Akon is also known for his hit singles like “Beautiful”, “I’m So Paid,” “Locked Up (Remix),”. Recently saw as an entrepreneur through clothing lines such as Akon Lighting Africa providing solar lamps in parts of Africa without electricity or other electrical infrastructure.

Akon’s Social Media Activity
Everyone has a different music style. For example, some people like to listen to Rock music and other person likes Rap Music.
Some people may think that he is not alive because they don’t see him in any concerts or videos for a long time. But the reality is that Akon was excited about his new album.
Akon knows how important it is to reach out to his fans with news of his tour dates through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat!
He also wanted all of us to know that he’s still alive by posting pictures of himself online even if he had tours coming up soon or just releasing an album so everyone can hear what’s been going on behind closed doors this past year.
The last time he posted something on Instagram was about a month ago and before that, it had been six months!
He is still alive because every artist needs to take some time off and focus on other things. Akon is making sure his legacy will be as great as people think it is, which means putting in the work behind the scenes so everyone can see how much he cares for his fans.
Akon is always connected with his fans through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat but this year has seen fewer posts than years past probably due to touring or releasing an album.
