Akon ‘s Solar Power Initiative Aims To Bring Electricity To 600 Million People In Africa

While Akon is not too busy lighting up the stage, the American Hip Hop artist sheds some new light on a new initiative, “Akon Lighting Africa.”

Located in Bamako, Mali, the Solar Academy will help African engineers and entrepreneurs develop skills that will enable them to produce solar power.

The plan, is to set up a training program to help develop the skills engineers and entrepreneurs need to maintain micro grids and solar-powered electricity systems, which will fill a huge gap that sees about 550 million people in Africa without power, according to the World Bank.

The initiative could give an estimated 600 million people power, as some of these areas enjoy 320 days of sun per year.

Although, this is not a charity. Akon acknowledged that this is a huge business opportunity and business is “wide open,” in Africa. Rightfully so, because giving the business monopoly of power to each individual state seems to always keep people in the dark, even while the technology is widely, and even cheaply available.

Of course, even though this story has been in the news for almost 2 weeks now, most wouldn’t know it due to the mainstream media’s continual coverage of Bruce- Caitlyn Jenner’s wild transformation from male to female.

Time to give credit where credit is due, and let Akon know the world is thankful for his Solar initiative, which will not just bring electricity to approximately 600 million people, but it will bring with it education, jobs, and growth in terms of economic development.

Akon proves that celebrities, whether they’re mega rich or moderately wealthy, can use their own money, power, and influence for positive change. Imagine what would happen if more celebrities actually used their money to empower others, and encourage free-market principles to keep the reciprocating principle continuing, without compromising or selling out to governments or entities like the World Bank to benefit from these causes?
