Akon Admits He Used His Brother


Akon Admits He Used His Brother

In a new interview Akon admits that he used his brother Bu to be his body double for interviews back when he first started his career.

CelebNMusic247.com has learned via Big Boy of Power106 about the funny antics of Akon and his brother Bu Thiam who used to impersonate him and do radio interviews while the real Akon was out at another interview.



He goes on to say sometimes he was double booked so he used Bu to cover him instead of cancelling the interviews.

Akon even admitted that his brother got arrested one time for pretending to be him.

Abou “Bu” Thiam, 30, is co-CEO with Akon of Konvict Muzik and is now Interscope-affiliated Kon Live Distribution, home of Lady Gaga. Bu has since inked a joint-venture distribution agreement between Island Def Jam and his Bu Vision, whose roster includes CyHi Da Prynce.
