We have not heard much from singer, songwriter, producer, and philanthropist, Akon over the past few years. He has been primarily focused on ventures outside of music, such as his ongoing project to bring solar energy to Africa, Akon Lighting Africa.
However, he is back today with a new single titled “Wakanda.” The track draws its beat and some lyrical and flow influences from the original Afro-punk track “Drogba (Joanna)” by Afro B. The song makes reference to the hit movie, The Black Panther,’ even mentioning it directly in some of the lyrics. The track is suspected to be the second single off of Akon’s forthcoming project, ‘El Negreeto,’ expected to release on August 30th. The first single, “Get Money” featuring Anuel AA, released back in May.
