World Akon to Provide Electricity to One Million Homes in Africa

Famous Sierra Leone music Artiste Akon has begun a new charity bid dubbed "Light Up Africa". The idea is pretty simple and pretty huge: he plans to provide electricity to one million homes in the 'impoverished' continent, as reported by VladTV. The star admits that it does sound like a big goal, but everything comes into perspective once you consider that Africa is in itself a formidable continent.

In February, Akon made a nine-c0untry tour where he had meetings with heads of state and ministers of energy. He was able to electrify 200,000 homes from that tour.

Akon expects to have achieved the goal of his charity by the end of this year 2014.
