Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known by his stage name Akon, is a famous Senegalese-American singer. He talked about the strengths of Afrobeats “poster boys” Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido and how they are different from each other.
In an interview with well-known American media personality Sway Calloway, the entrepreneur, whose successful career in the US helped bring African talent to the world stage, talked about the three biggest and most influential Afrobeat acts in his eyes.
The big name in Konvict music said that Burna Boy is a “Beast” who is “killing the game” right now. He said that Wizkid was a natural “Superstar” who could release just one song a year and still have a big impact on the industry all year long.
Akon went on to say that Davido is the hardest working artist because he is the “Underdog.” The 49-year-old OG also said that Mr. Eazi was smart and a businessman more than an artist.
