RUMOR: Akon’s Family In Senegal Is TOO POOR To Even Have Shoes

: MediaTakeOut.com is hearing whispers that Akon's family members back in Senegal are not doing to well. Here's what one of our faithful readers from Africa had to say about things:

Akon's Family in Senegal is said that does not have food to eat as I write now. They depend on government grants and food subsidies. Akon doesn't give a damn -he stays in 5 star hotels when he is in Africa. He continues leaving large even though his family walks barefoot with no shoes....

Now that's sad...

How do any of us readers know that this story is real? I don't understand how this is the kind of stuff for which this website is said to be so powerful in the black community. No proof, no pictures, no substantiation. Nothing but an accusation, with absolutely nothing to back it up. Why do the readers on this site put up with this?

Akon's family is wealthy. His father has 5 wives...to pull that off you have to be very wealthy. Each of the wives own their own houses. And they all fix some good thieb! Research MTO. Research.

I don't believe this one. Akon donates a significant amount of money to senegal and other reputable orginizations in Africa. Why would he ignore his own family. something just does'nt sound right. You can't just come on here and make stupid allegations to bring another man down. People will actualy believe this type of nonsense.

First of all I wouldn't believe this even if I saw a picture. I have friends in(and a family member that relocated to) Senegal. This is a very progressive country. Dakar (the capital)is like a little New York---skyscrapers, mass transit, universities etc. Unless his family lives in the deep country areas of Senegal, people may walk without shoes because they CHOOSE do or are just homeless like some folks are here in the US. On the other hand, these relatives may just be trifling folks that are distant cousins that he is not aware of....

AS I WRITE NOW? LEAVING LARGE?..DAMN M.T.O..LOL..GET IT TOGETHER WITH THE SPELLCHECK ALREADY!!! WHAT A DAMN SHAME!!...ANYWAYS HOPE THIS STORY ISN'T TRUE BECAUSE THAT'S A DAMN SHAME THAT YOUR FAMILY IS ASSED OUT TO THE EXTREME & HE MADE IT BIG IN THE U.S, LIVES THE GOOD LIFE & APPARENTLY WILL KEEP DOING BIGGER/BETTER THINGS...SUP W THAT KONVICT? IF TRUE THERE DEFINTELY HAS TO BE A GOOD EXPLANATION FOR ALL THIS MISHAP!

In my country a man will not let his family be peasants unless they refuse to bow at his feet. Maybe they do not bow when they visit his 5 star suite in Nairobe. It is a shame for the family to have too much pride to bow. They should be stoned in the missle of the village.

@Ms Afghanistan Again you have misinterpreted a situation and placed your cultural slant on it. The confused, war-torned Middle East is quite different from the cradle of civilization, Africa....So dont get it TWISTED. What you do there in Afghanistan, is not the same as what they do in Senegal, except that many people there are practicing Muslims.Period.

WELL IS THE FAMILY MEMBER AN AUNT, UNCLE, COUSIN, DISTANT COUSIN OR WHAT? HE NOT OBLIGATED TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. IF YOU READ AKON BIO, I READ HE WAS BORN IN MISSOURI. HE MIGHT NOT EVEN KNOW THEM. THATS ONE THING I HATE AS SOON AS SOMEBODY GET A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY, FAMILY FROM NO WHERE FEEL AS IF THEY ARE OWED SOMETHING. SOME PEOPLE PLAY THAT FAMILY CARD TOO STRONG.

Yeah, don't know if I believe this 1 either. But you wanna know sumthin? I wouldn't give S HIT to half my damn family either! Just cause he got money doesn't mean he is all of a sudden a damn bank! Why don't his "family" do something about their situation? I know if I became an overnite millionaire, I'd have the scumbags of my family who haven't spoken to me in 15 years tellin me how much they "love" me! When the real truth is that they LOVE what I could do for them. Those types of people it's never enough. I wish MTO would do something called FULL stories. None of us know the backround on him and his family in Senegal, now do we. I am NOT a fan of AKON, but let him distribute his money to his family that he sees fit. If he is being greedy and not helping his real family(they ones that r true) well karma will get his ass it always does.Oh and @ MisAFGANASTAN sorry but I will NEVER bow down to any mans feet EVER! It just proves that the animals live over in your neck of the woods, stoning ppl, that is a sick practice, I don't give a ish what someone did. Are you even allowed on the internet? I thought the net was blasphemous??? I do feel sorry for you though!

I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THIS STORY!! How does that look? 5 star hotels but doesn't give his family $$ I don't think so. And this man recently bought a diamond mine. If anything, he'd be putting them to work for some $$ Unless they're like distant relatives or something...he may not even know those folks. If ya'll won the lottery, how many of your distant relatives would you give money to?

Wow...this sounds so much like the disgruntled family member who couldn't get anything they THOUGHT they would get from HIS (AKON, ALIAUNE THIAM) hard work. People, first and foremost, in Senegal, where his roots are, it is different by far. Senegalese actually take care of each other. Many more leach off of the hardworkers and <<<< EXPECT >>>> to be provided for NO MATTER WHAT. All the same this is the way of their culture. Not saying that his family or any other family will condone the behavior of the leach, for it is not tolerated. His family is very hardworking. ALL of his immediate brothers and sisters are STRONG WILLED SINCERE and GIVING PEOPLES, as well as his extended family (like Mama Africa <<< Ms. Kine >>>, his mom, Mor Thiam, many and I mean many cousins, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews....so on and so forth... STOP BEING UNHAPPY and GET A JOB!!! In so far as what Akon does with his money, this is his business...AKON takes very good care of his family (immediate and the distant alike, abroad and here within the states)... I need not speculate as I am a very good friend of the family, have been way before people realized his potential. Instead of hating on what the brother does, go out and about and do what can be done to make a change as he and many others are doing. Trying to scar his character is a norm, as we KNOW who you are... Folks, one mustn't believe EVERYTHING one reads or hears or even sees... Much Love to you Ali and your family everywhere...
