‘I am delighted that our Foundation is now fully operational and that so many great, influential people joined the team and I last night at an event highlighting our ongoing commitment to Africa. This is the beginning of an epic journey designed to lend a helping hand to those who need a lift up’.
Echoing this sentiment and speaking during the event itself, Senegalese-American singer Akon explained: ‘Life is like a hotel room. We are all just passing through. One should think about who else needs a room when we have enjoyed the best of it’.
