The Afro American music star, Akon, continues his tour in Africa countries within the framework of his electrification in Africa project, « Akon lighting Africa » that he undertook 6 months ago in 10 African countries.
The singer has stayed in Benin since Tuesday, 28th October. He was welcomed at the Cardinal Bernardin Gantin International Aairport by a crowd of young people of Give1Project world network.
Pointing the reason of his visit, he reminded to the Beninese authorities that he aspires to bring electricity to 1 million households in Africa.
He thus proceeded to the reception of material installed in the village of Avlo, Benin where the testing of the project started.
The artist seized the opportunity to exchange with the Beninese youth in the framework of development of the country mainly the role that is theirs in order to be able to take over.
Akon will also be received on television channels in order to explain the project as well as his dreams for Africa and its youth.
