R&B superstar and international icon Akon has unleashed his latest single, ‘Slow Motion’, accompanied by an elaborate music video directed by Sesan Onguro. A different departure for the legendary artist, Akon brings in influences from Afro Fusion and Amapiano into this new track as he seeks to champion the sounds of Africa.

Akon has been an unstoppable force in the world of music since arriving on the scene almost 20 years ago. Boasting worldwide hits such as ‘Locked Up’, ‘Smack That’, and ‘Don’t Matter’ amongst others, the artist has dominated the charts both in the US and UK, with four songs  triple Platinum singles, three songs certified as 2x Platinum and over ten songs Platinum certified.

This longevity at the top of popular music is something very few artists have been able to maintain. Alongside this, Akon has also started his own label, Konvict Kulture, and has recently released an EP called ‘TT Freak’ which aims to champion African culture. Having already achieved so much, there are no signs of Akon slowing down as he enters the next chapter of his career.
