Akon Covers VIBE; Admits Polygamy Claim Was a Publicity Stunt

Published: Wednesday 7th Mar 2007 by Sam
Rapper Akon appears on the April edition of popular magazine VIBE (due to hit the stands 20th March). According to Bossip he says in the interview:

There was a big rumour about me having many wives. It started off as a joke and it got serious. And then I was just running with it to see how far it’d go. In a way, I was causing controversy, ’cause I knew certain people that wouldn’t normally attend to me, that will make them go, ‘What?’ So, in a way, it was a publicity stunt.

What was the point? It didn’t really do anything for him. I really don’t see what the hype is with this guy anyway. One minute everyone is complaining about his annoying voice and now everyone loves him. African voodoo?
