Report: Akon Performs In Giant Bubble To Avoid Catching Ebola In Africa?

Published: Friday 3rd Oct 2014 by David


The good people of the Democratic Republic of Congo were treated to a performance put on by ‘Locked Up‘ singer Akon recently, taking to the country to watch him bring a number of his biggest hits to life in the city of Goma.

Unfortunately, if criticisms aimed the singer’s way hold any weight, his audience soon learned that they could look but not touch when he decided to crowd-surf in a giant bubble…in a reported bid to avoid catching the Ebola virus.

Full story below…

Though airborne transmission of the disease has not been documented during outbreaks, reports claim that Akon’s decision to surf the crowd in the transparent bubble came in direct response to the diseases’ continued reign in West Africa, claiming eight deaths in Nigeria and 1,998 in Liberia.





The Daily Mail reports on his criticism:

‘The Ebola virus is no joke,’ harrumphed The Source website. ‘And to avoid contracting it from anybody, when Akon left the stage to crowd surf with the people that were attending his concert, he did so in a huge plastic protective bubble.’

What the website did not report was that the five-time Grammy nominee has performed inside the stage prop on a number of previous occasions including in Perth, Australia, and Dubai, both in 2010. Neither of those countries were battling Ebola outbreaks at the time.


So, let us know…

Do you think Akon’s “bubble stunt” was Ebola-rated?

    It was probably a lucky coincidence that he did that stunt everywhere else before there. He knows he was happy it was already part of his show.

  4. HighwayUnicorn October 3, 2014

    Instead of worrying about ebola he needs to worry about CATCHING a hit album.

    • Yonce October 3, 2014

      • Stay in the SHADE October 3, 2014

    If you gonna act like Mariah and be scared like a little girl, then why go to Africa?

    • Stephon Maurice Jackson October 3, 2014

      Mariah Carey is a VERY strong & fearless woman. She probably has more balls than you Paul. BYE

    If he did do it to not catch the virus, then I don’t blame him. But I agree with @lighwayUnicorn. There will be no crowd to surf if he doesn’t release quality music. This dude use to be everywhere. This post had to remind me that he still exists.

  11. musicMatters101 October 3, 2014

    Honestly I rather crowd surf like that ALL the damn time, because then the can’t touch or grope you. Plus over all its easier and seems like more fun than traditional crowd surfing: SHRUG!

  12. Pu$$y Juice October 3, 2014

    The way i laughed at this pics. What a ignorant moran. He shouldn’t have brought his flop ass to perform there in a god damn bubble as if they are animals!! Damn !!

  13. Casual-T October 3, 2014

    Not a stunt to avoid catching Ebola. How does he got out of the bubble w/o risking infection for his stage crew?

  14. Kim Kardashian Stan October 3, 2014

  15. itchiyah October 3, 2014

  16. blue October 3, 2014

    wait chances are it was all part of his act like all the other times he has done it before…but if not then why crowd surf in the first place?

  17. And? October 3, 2014

    And?He could’ve just not shown up, I don’t blame him one bit and the people bitching about this are hypocrites!I’ll be damned if I knew about a disease that scientist know so little about and not protect myself.

  18. LB October 3, 2014

    Brandy did an even better job, she performed for an empty stadium. Ebola is a real threat y’all 🙂

  19. J October 3, 2014
