R&B singer Akon is defending President Barack Obama after Lupe Fiasco called him the “biggest terrorist. Akon spoke with VladTV in an interview and said that Lupe has to look at the bigger picture.
“I travel internationally, so I see what Obama is doing for the U.S.” explained Akon. “He’s actually changed the whole image of the United States completely. We was looked at as enemies at one point. When I went to third world countries and Middle Eastern countries, I used to wonder, ‘Should I use my American passport or should I use my Senegalese passport?’ That’s how crazy it was at one point when [George W.] Bush was in power. But now we’re being welcomed around the world because of the political decisions that Obama made.”
