DJ envy envy’s Akon😂 you’d think he’d be happy, inspired, and proud of a black African man being able to do the things that he does but instead he kinda acts a little jealous and skeptical🤔

even if you are african american, if you come to africa, you want to create a project, the african bank of developpment with the guarantee of the country where you create your project they give you money to invest your project in africa here, for example if you come to Rwanda, Rwanda will be the guarantee to get the money in the bank, in Ghana the same, in Sénégal the same etc in african couantry.

I saw an interview of Akon where he was giving props to China and actually used China as an example of his view of the future for Africa. Icouldnt believe he did that. I guess he really is a neutral

I have learnt a lot from this one video from Akon and I like how he has to school them on Cryto currency and who owns the mineral resources. This man is hard at work and focused like he had a point to prove which is absolutely great very well informed man right there who is doing some really amazing things. Black child it is possible!!!

Akon lol you sell out... you are not a leader stop trying you let so many people down... I'm sorry but Akon had no idea what cryptocurrency.. I love his bullshit he try's to pass off.. I hear nothing but bullshit coming out of his mouth... I hate this guy for selling Africa to China.. he needs to go away.. he is all kind of talking but won't ever really say anything you'll come out of the conversation. He talked all this game I was playing and he literally ended Africa..

Just to broaden our knowledge of reality...
1) Caribbean is a sea...with sum islands...people speak any number of languages...not just Calypso. Cuba, DR, and PR are all nestled in the Caribbean sea. Dutch-speaking too. Even Danish on Dominica. And we can't forget French. Caribbean named after the Carib people who lived there when...you know.
2) Africa...sigh...it's complicated...it's a whole continent...many people live there...not all have dark skin...not all are our ancestors...not all came as slaves...

Akon was wrong to say that, the west we blacks build from slavery is not for us. The democrats who historicaly voted in supreme court to keep us in slavery re now behind the Chinese and akon alike trying to take over Africa and they don't want us in it

Interesting Fact:

Africa had a King named Mansa Musa I, the richest person in HISTORY, he had a personal net worth of $400billion at the time of his death in 1331, he ruled West Africa's Malian Empire which covered modern day Ghana, Timbuktu and Mali. (yes T'challa is prolly inspired by this guy) Maybe we'll have knew guy like Mansa or T'Challa in Form of Akon!! We already have Iron Man so.. ;) #elonmusk #ironman #akoncity #blackpanther

Interesting. It would be amazing to see the continent of Africa as a whole pull themselves above the poverty line in my lifetime. Akon is definitely a role model worthy of leading the charge towards that direction.

Its confusing to people because hes explaining without getting to the heart of the dollar. And the value of blockchain. People still think the dollar is a valuable thing. Your really waking up every morning really ready to work for green and orange and blue peices of paper. Not Gold or silver. Actually bitcoin is valuable because of the blockchain system it secures that every transaction and transfer of digital coin is recorded throughout the entire world. No one can fake bitcoin like you could gold or silver so no one can steal it from you because of blockchain technology and how it works. everything wrong with physical assets and liquidity, crypto has solve for now. You dont need to put it in a bank. It cant be hacked and
its digital so no wallet and it can be transferred likely in 1min or less. Its liquid so you can exchange cryptos like bitcoin for any type of currency or commodity or property right from your phone. Buy a house without going to the bank waste time and paperwork transfer and transaction fees. Bitcoin and the possibility of Crypto it makes you a walking liquidity machine. You wealth can be anything. And you can't keep printing more there's a limited supply so it keeps its rarity and helps increase its value of the existing coins out there. Gold is exactly that it's rare its limited and can be traded and accepted as payment and currency not cause you can eat gold but because its make up and existence is rare in this reality we live in.

Afro beats was not created by Fela. West Africa banned Central African music, while in the background studying Central Africa musik to call it theirs. West Africa had never been that influential in music like that. That's a disgrace to sound creators like Ok Jazz, Pepa Wemba, Pepe Kale, Zaiko, Wenge, and the whole Soukous inventors. "Afrobeats" is soukous from the 80s made on the computer. It's not a new genre, the majority of the sound come from both Kongo, Kinshasa and Brazaville. West Africans needs to be honest and stop lying to the world where "Afrobeats" style came from. Fela Kuti jacked his style from Empire Bakuba, Zaiko, Viva La Musica, and etc... He didn't create that sound simply because that style of music come from tribal musics in Kongo. It's wonderful that they had export the genre, but it was not created by them. Give credit were it's due. Shout out to P-Square and TooFan for always having a production that understand Soukous.

Money in the 🇺🇸 was backed by GOLD.
think of a stupid painting that worth 500K it's just a dumb painting painted by am overjoyed painter like picasso. Money doesn't mean nothing. at least Africa has diamonds and natural resources. that has value.
