African-American Singer Aliaune Damala Badara popularly known as Akon has decided to open schools in Africa after revealing that he and the late Michael Jackson had planned to carry out the project together.

According to Akon, he and Michael Jackson had big dreams of collaborating in a huge way to bless students in Africa. He described the late Michael Jackson as a very caring person who had a passion for helping African children but could not fulfil some of his wishes before his death.

“Mike was just an amazing person man, I wish people had a chance to understand and really experience the person the way I did,” said Akon during an interview with HipHopDX.

“We had like a good two years together where we just hung out practically four, five times a week, right? Real conversations and he would shock you, the kind of shit that he like, the kind of shit he would say,” Akon told the outlet.

He narrated that Michael Jackson always wanted to help African children achieve success in their life because he never really experienced a childhood himself, having risen to stardom by the young age of eight.

“His biggest thing was always making sure that kids were in a comfortable position to be a kid. Because he never really had a childhood himself,” Akon stated.

“He was a big star as a child. He didn’t get a chance to go to the carnival, go to the movies, eat candy, like things that kids naturally did so when he got older, he surrounded himself with all those kiddish things that he never had a chance to be at,” he added.
