The Senegalese-American recording artist talks frankly about US race relations, “rebranding” Africa, and his music. Akon talks to Al Jazeera about running his musical career as a business; his projects – both philanthropic and artistic; singing songs for peace and whether he thinks it can really make an impact; and being an African in the US.

In the interview, Akon talks about being a businessman, and how that’s very important in the field of entertainment. He says that even though he can perform on stage, he’s a businessman before being an entertainer.
