Akon says he and Michael Jackson were discussing plans to open a number of music-focused schools across Africa … which got tragically derailed with the death of the King of Pop.
We got Akon in New York City and he told us about a concept he and MJ came up with back in the day … a series of music universities in Akon’s home continent.
Akon says he and Michael wanted to supply students with instruments, infrastructure and industry advice to hone their skills … because as he and MJ discussed, there was — and still is — a lot of undiscovered talent in Africa.
Sadly, Michael died in 2009 before he and Akon could break ground on any schools … but Akon says it’s something he still wants to make happen in the future.
It’s a pretty interesting revelation on Michael … and Akon tells us why folks should not be questioning MJ’s legacy.
