AKON - Empowering Visionary Entrepreneur 

Making real POWER MOVES!


Producer, Songwriter, Singer and CEO of Konvict Muzik, AKON took fans and the business world by surprise in late 2015 when he announced his vision to bring solar power to millions of Africans living without electricity. Through his latest project, Akon Lighting Africa, now operating in 15 African countries, the Senegalese-born social entrepreneur aims to bring light to the nearly 600 million people living in the dark in sub-Saharan Africa. 


Earlier this year, Akon and his partners announced the launch of the Solektra Solar Academy, an initiative establishing a pipeline for solar power to be engineered, installed and managed by locals. Courses are staged in different modules which include both theoretical and practical classes focusing on issues specific to the continent. Topics include the development of decentralized rural electrification systems, general dynamics of the solar market and more. By the end of the year, Solektra Solar Academy aims to train 200 people in Bamako, Mali.
