Hip hop superstar Akon is going viral, after he made some very controversial statements surrounding Black fatherhood.
Akon, who has 4 wives and nine children between them, said in a recent interview that he supports Nick Cannon’s decision to have 12 children, from 7 different women.’
Akon explained, “I agree with him 1,000 percent, … That’s how life is supposed to be. He’s rich, he’s responsible … He takes care of every one of those children. And the baby mothers are with it, they hurt for nothing and they live comfortably.”
The interviewer asked, “What about the kids though?”
“What about them?” replied Akon. “[Nick Cannon] is there for every one of them. Nick is there for every single one of those kids. I got nine [children] and I’m there for every one of mine.”
The beautiful interviewer, Zeze Millz continued to press Akon about being there for all of the important moments in his children’s lives.
“So every single time, you’re at every single recital?” bluntly asked.
“No, that’s a White man’s thing,” Akon said as he became much more animated. “Who gives a fuck about a recital? Listen, my job is to raise my kids to be responsible, to be understanding, to protect their mother, to give a hand with their father and to assist with family planning, and to be responsible adults.”
He added: “My job ain’t to be doing all that extra stuff, all these holidays and recitals and all that. Guess what, while I’m taking care of my responsibilities to make sure the family has a roof over their head and food, if I have the time to do that, then yes, I will do that.”
