Senegalese-American Hiphop and R&B superstar, Akon has debunked an alleged comments he made that poor people live and enjoy life more than the famous and rich.
This clarification comes after the death of his business partner and friend, Michael Williams some days ago.
Akon reportedly then, told TMZ that actor’s death shows that the rich and famous suffer in life more than the poor do.
But reacting to the assertions to TMZ in his recent chat Akon said:
“It’s not really more so a walk back, but what I do want to express is that sometimes when comments like that are made—I always speak according to what I’m personally going through myself.
“Nobody can sit there and tell me I didn’t go through poverty”.
“I’m having more problems.. successfully dealing with all that comes with success than I had when I was poor. I was actually happier when I was poor.”
