11. Akon – Mining For Diamonds
Normally, people head to a store to purchase jewelry with diamonds in them. It can be costly. So, singerAkon decided that it was better to own a diamond mine than bother to purchase diamonds from Jared’s. He quietly bought a diamond mine in South Africa. Akon has remained rather mum on details surrounding the South African mine.
He claims that his ownership is “complicated.” Yeah, no kidding. One of the last things I would think about purchasing is a diamond mine, let alone one in Africa. Ever hear of blood diamonds, Akon?
