Akon Announces Canadian Tour
Grammy-nominated singer/rapper/producer Akon has announced the tour dates for his upcoming Canadian “PROMO” Tour starting September 2 to September 20 with more to be added featuring official support from Canadian platinum recording artist Karl Wolf & his new group BAE with special guest Peter Jackson. Akon will be touring in support of his upcoming new album ‘Stadium’. Five albums, five genres of music equals the long anticipated album “STADIUM” which will be his first album since he released ‘Freedom’ in 2008.
Akon will also be on tour throughout Canada promoting his Akon Lighting Africa program, which has successfully brought electricity to millions of households in Africa with solar energy. More than 1.3 billion Africans have no access to electricity; and only 5 percent living in sub-Saharan Africa have electricity. Those staggering figures prompted the certified platinum recording artist to launch the Akon Lighting Africa (ALA) initiative in 2014, which aims to bring solar power to nearly half — 600 million — of the Africans who live without power.
Akon’s shimmering, soulful voice has propelled countless hits across genres from pop to hip hop and dance. With over 35 million albums sold worldwide, five Grammy Award Nominations, 45 Billboard Hot 100 Songs, and to many numerous music industry awards under his belt to mention , he’s simply unstoppable. As soon as you hear Akon’s voice you know it’s him, he is iconic.
