Akon says that Michael Jackson had planned to build schools in Africa with him before he passed away.
“There are a few things that we did discuss. One of them was we were gonna build music schools all throughout Africa,” Akon told HHDX. “We wanted to create a music school that allowed kids to learn how to play instruments, vocal coaching, the music business, entertainment, so they don’t just walk into it not knowing the education of how the business works and things like that.”
He continued: “Even in Akon City in the educational district the first one will be built in there and I’m naming it after the Michael Jackson Foundation. So I’m gonna be naming it MJ University.”
Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009 from a cardiac arrest at the age of 50, as a result of a deadly cocktail of sedatives and an anesthetic, propofol, which was administered by his personal doctor, Conrad Murray.
