When she hit the scene in 2008, Lady GaGa credited ‘Lonely’ singer Akon for being instrumental in her rise from underground artiste to chart-scorching debutante.
Joined at the hip during the promotional campaign for her debut album ‘The Fame‘ and its lead single ‘Just Dance’, the years that followed saw the ‘Konvict‘ creator fade into this distance as the ‘Paparazzi’ singer became the global force we now know her to be today.
This week, Akon has detailed the demise of their business relationship, explaining why he ‘sold his share’ once he believed she had peaked.
Cold words below…
“Actually I cashed out. I got out while the gooding was hot. It’s like a business, you build it to sell it. When I got it to the peak of where I felt it couldn’t go nowhere, and there was nowhere left to go but down, I cashed out, in other words I sold my share and got out before it was too late.”
I mean, damn.
