Konvict Muzik label head Akon recently compared his artist Lady Gaga and pop star Christina Aguilera saying that the newcomer has paved her own lane. Based on Kon's observations, Aguilera has fallen off.
"Aw man, that's not even any competition," Akon said in an interview. "You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up. Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different. And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out." (VIBE)
Kon recently said Gaga is helping break the barrier between pop and rap music.
"I think what everybody else didn't," Akon said about Gaga. "She had went through like four or five labels. When I closed my deal at Interscope, she was getting dropped that week ... they was dropping her again. I was like 'Yo, I wanna sign that right there.' Jimmy [Iovine] was like 'Yeah, whatever you want, take her. Let's get it done.' She's blossomed into a super-mega star. She's pretty much retired me. She was definitely a blessing. She came at the right moment. I'm glad I believed in her, boy. That goes to show, if you believe in something good -- it will pay off." (Associated Press)
Akon will reportedly feature the singer on his upcoming album, Stadium.
Last time we caught up with hip-hop star Akon,he was in Miami recording songs for his new album, Stadium. He calls the record, which is slated for an April or May release, "high energy.'' "It's going to be big,'' he says. "I'm on a whole other level right now. My life is bright, and you'll hear it on the album." Expect cameos from his protege and Konvict Muzik artist Lady Gaga and David Guetta (who co-produced three of the tracks). (Miami Herald)
He previously spoke with SOHH about allowing his artists like T-Pain to step in front of the limelight.
"Me, I'm the trainer and the manager," Kon told SOHH. "I will book the show and T-Pain will lead the rings. He leads the ring period. I just over look the tent. I put the tent up and then I allow you to go in there and showcase your art. I know my place, they know they place and that's why we are successful and we continue to move forward. One thing I'm never going to do is try to jump in front of his shine." (SOHH)Konvict Muzik label head Akon recently compared his artist Lady Gaga and pop star... more

Violent protests erupted in Sri Lanka after troublemaking singer Akon appeared in a music video, Sexy Chick, which depicts a sexy pool party with a brief Buddha cameo. Now he's been denied a visa, and it wasn't even his video.
Akon appears in this awful David Guetta video as a guest vocalist. He apologized to Buddhists in Sri Lanka, saying "[I] am a spiritual man, so I can understand why they are offended. But violence is never the answer and I am disheartened to hear about what happened in Sri Lanka."Violent protests erupted in Sri Lanka after troublemaking singer Akon appeared in a... more
R&B singer/Konvict label boss Akon has issued a statement regarding a controversial video that has drawn the wrath of Buddhists in Sri Lanka.
Scores of people who follow the Buddhist religion in the country protested Akon’s appearance because of his video with David Guetta titled “Sexy Chick.”
Hundreds of followers of the religion took to the streets yesterday (March 23) and damaged the office buildings of the Maharaja Broadcasting and Television Network, a TV station that broadcast the video, which features women dancing around a sacred Buddhist statue.
“I was not aware that the statue was even on the set of the video until now. I would never set out to offend or desecrate anyone's religion or religious beliefs,” Akon told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “I myself am a spiritual man, so I can understand why they are offended, but violence is never the answer and I am disheartened to hear about what happened yesterday in Sri Lanka.”
The fiasco resulted in the Sri Lankan government denying Akon’s visa to perform at a concert on April 24th.
Akon’s agency American Talent Agency confirmed the show has been officially canceled.
“Due to the recent events that transpired yesterday in Sri Lanka, we have decided to postpone Akon’s upcoming show.“ a rep for American Talent Agency said in a statement. “We are working diligently with the local promoters to ensure the safety of both our talent and the fans before committing to a new date. Akon is looking forward to performing for the people of Sri Lanka and we hope to have this situation resolved in the coming weeks.”R&B singer/Konvict label boss Akon has issued a statement regarding a... more

In the five years since, Ya Boy has worked with Game and even appeared on Kevin Federline's 2006 album Playing With Fire.
