Akon: I was Happier When I Was Poor Than When I Am Rich.

American top Rapper and 'lonely' hitmaker has claimed to be experiencing very uncomfortable life now as he is rich than when he was poor.

It is therapeutic to everyone to be happy with life and feel free to live. To many people if you them to choose between being poor or rich, obviously you know the answer everyone can answer.

But to this Senegalese-American singer he is free to choose his earlier life without the richness that he is having now "Nobody can sit here and tell me, that I didn't go through poverty. I was the young African kid, barefoot and playing soccer In the village with no electricity no running water. I knew what that looked like, believe me I know what poverty looks like". Akon said.

" But I also know what success looks like, and from my personal experience, I am having more problems successfully dealing with all that comes with success than I had when I was poor. I was actually happier when I was poor". He added.

The singer whose net worth is about Ksh 8 billions, is preferring him being poor than rich because he can't find happiness with all of his money.
