Because of Akon 600 Million Africans Now Have Electricity. Must Read


Popular singer and rapper Akon decided to bring LIGHT to Africa in 2014 in favor of bringing solar energy for the people of Africa. This idea came to him when Akon heard the continent has 320 days of sunshine a year. There are just so many people in Africa still living in darkness while the world fights over who has more followers on Instagram. It’s insane.


Akon launched an organization namely “Akon Lighting Africa” in 2014 and now it turned real.

A wide range of quality solar solutions, including street lamps, domestic and individual kits, have been installed in 14 African countries.


As a result, a number of households, villages, community houses, schools, and health centers located in rural areas have been connected to electricity for the first time ever.

Local jobs, primarily for young people, have also been created in these communities, whether for installation of equipment or for maintenance.

So, now over 600 Million people can live in the light like the rest of the world thanks to Akon.

African government appreciated this initiative now the benefited people are in the facilities of solar light and their life became easier because of the light.

If successful people contribute such a way our world will be more livable.
