Popular singer, Aliaume Damala Badara Thiam, better known as Akon has come under backlash for his thoughts on poverty.

The Senegalese had said he was much happier when he was poor because life is tougher for the rich than the poor.

He said: ‘Nobody can tell me I didn't go through poverty. I was that African young kid playing soccer with no electricity no running water. I knew what tat felt like. I know what poverty looks like but I also know what success looks like and from my personal experience, Ii am having more problems successfully than all that comes with success I has when I was poor. I was actually happier when I was poor but that's my personal experience.'
