Courage of His Konvictions: Master Session with Akon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With three best-selling albums, five Grammy nominations, 300+ guest appearances and dozens of songs on the Hot 100, writer-producer Akon is one of the most successful - and prolific - creators in urban music.

Akon has gotten where he is because of incredible talent and a healthy dose of ambition. He’ll detail his rise to the top in this master session, and (hopefully) give us the scoop on his anticipated fourth album Stadium.
