Honestly, just gonna come right out and say it,
AKON IS COMING TO PERFORM IN LAHORE AND KARACHI.
I promise this isn’t even sponsored or anything, THIS IS REAL EXCITEMENT.
As part of World Soccer Stars 2019, Akon is making his way to Pakistan to kick off the event that will take place in April.
World Soccer Stars is an initiative run to have soccer legends from all around the world come over to this side of the globe to play a match. It is actually pretty insane that football fans in Pakistan will be able to watch some of their heroes playing the game right in front of their eyes.
Football legends Kaka and Luis Figo arrived in Pakistan just this morning and are already hitting the ground running with press interviews.
But okay GETTING BACK TO AKON COMING TO PERFORM!!!!
Whether or not you are or were a fan of Akon, the fact that he is making his way to Pakistan is absolutely JUST SO GREAT. In the past couple of years, Pakistan has had its fair share of international performers. Everyone from Edward Maya to Diplo and Major Lazer, this country has definitely been making some moves on the music scene.
Speaking in regards to coming over to the best country on earth (Pakistan, lol), Akon reportedly said,
“It’s time to rock Pakistan, I am looking forward to visiting Karachi and Lahore with Touchsky Group. So let’s get it down in Pakistan with World Soccer Stars.”
Screaming. I am screaming.
And just to get you all hyped up for the concert, we thought we would put together a little list of Mr Akon’s best hits!
The track that started it all: Smack That
Reminiscent AF: DON’T MATTER!
One of the most underrated songs of his: Angel ~
And of course: Right Now Na Na
And whatever the fuck this song was: Chammak Challo
Are you excited about the performance? Let us know in the comments below! Love you.
