Early Life Story/History
Akon was born Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam on April 16th of 1973 in St. Louis, Missouri. Although Akon was born in the United States, he also has strong roots in Senegal. He spent much of his youth flying between the United States and Senegal, and it wasn’t until the age of seven that Akon settled permanently in Newark, New Jersey.
While Akon was still spending half of his time in Senegal, he learned a lot about music from his parents. His mother was a professional dancer, and his father was the famed percussionist Mor Thiam. Over the course of his youth, Akon learned how to play five instruments, including drums and guitar.
Settling permanently in the States wasn’t easy for Akon, and he had trouble adjusting as a young child. The situation wasn’t helped when Akon’s family relocated to Atlanta, leaving him and his older brother to finish high school on their own.
The next part of Akon’s life is somewhat controversial. The official story is that Akon spent three years behind bars for his involvement in an auto theft organization. However, as later court documents and interviews would reveal, there is no record of Akon actually being incarcerated or even being convicted of a crime.
That being said, there are apparently records of Akon being investigated by detectives. When confronted with these inconsistencies, Akon claimed that he was in and out of jail during this time and that if those sentences were added together, they would be equal to about three years.
