Akon’s ‘Bubble’ Performance in Africa Draws Criticism
Akon is stirring up some controversy and he may not even know it. The singer recently performed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, crowdsurfing in a plastic bubble.
The artist reportedly jumped in the bubble as a precautionary measure to avoid contact with anyone exposed to the Ebola disease. However, this is not true.
According to the Independent, the rapper was performing in the big plastic bubble just for the fun of it. While isolation is used to help stop the spread of the Ebola virus, this wasn't the case when Akon was performing in front of 60,000 people.
In the end, the 'Smack That' artist was performing in support of the United Nations’ International Day of Peace. The concert was held in order to help bring a sense of peace and togetherness to the city of Goma, which has been oppressed with violence and chaos for the past two decades.
Akon has yet to address the controversy.
