Akon Doubles Down On Comment That Rich People Have More Problems Than Poor People

Akon recently came under fire for some comments he made where he claimed that rich people have more problems than poor people, and he’s refusing to walk back his remarks because, as he states in a new interview with TMZ, he’s speaking from personal experience.

Speaking about the passing of actor Michael K. Williams, Akon suggested that sometimes, rich people have even more problems than poor people. His comment was misunderstood by many, and it ended up offending some. Catching up with the media outlet again this weekend, Akon re-addressed his comments, explaining that his sentiment comes from personal experience as he has lived both worlds.
