Akon Lights Up Africa

by Regular Hero

January 6, 2017

Shoutout to rapper and Regular Hero of the Day, Akon! Akon partnered with DJ Hardwerk and Shell oil to bring awareness to the public about Africa. 1 billion people currently live without electricity. One of the biggest setbacks of underdeveloped societies is the lack of electricity, restricting growth and function in day to day activities.

Akon is using his resources to bring change globally. He has created a plan to illuminate rural countries by installing lighting infrastructure and creating jobs. We’re excited to see his plans grow in the years to come.
