While everyone is talking about Caitlyn Jenner, there has been other news that has emerged in our culture and it involves Akon supplying electricity to over 600 million people in Africa.
After launching his initiative titled 'Akon Lighting Africa', the producer-singer is now on the road to providing sustainable living for people in African countries. Now launching Solar Academy, the goal would be to train engineers and entrepreneurs so they develop skills which would enable them to produce solar power.
Think of it like this.
If you are bringing something totally new to a foreign country, that no one has never seen. Who will be in charge of sustaining that new thing?
Because people would not know how to sustain it.
Which is the exact reason as to why Solar Academy will supply that training which will ultimately supply many people of Africa with electricity.

“We have the sun and innovative technologies to bring electricity to homes and communities. We now need to consolidate African expertise,” said Samba Baithily, who founded Akon Lighting Africa with Akon and Thione Niang.
The organization also hopes to create jobs with its initiative. “We expect the Africans who graduate from this center to devise new, innovative, technical solutions,” said Niang.
“With this academy, we can capitalize on Akon Lighting Africa and go further.”
