- Me, Myself, and I
- Born in St. Louis and raised in Senegal, Africa, Akon moved to live in the United States full-time when he was seven. His family, headed by jazz musician Mor Thiam, settled in New Jersey, where Akon attended school.
But it was Akon�s love for music, which started because of his admiration of his father, that allowed him to turn his life around. He started playing a variety of percussion instruments and was eventually smitten by hip-hop, even though he didn�t care for it originally. It was brand new, growing and I thought it was rubbish,� he recalls. But as things started going, I started to realize how much of it kind of adapted to my lifestyle.�
