Akon ran through his hits with Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones, and Michael Jackson before revealing that he and the latter artist started to get close after working together. Akon talked about his personal experiences with Michael Jackson and expressed regret that the world never got to see the King of Pop’s true self. According to Akon, Michael Jackson choreographed everything that he wanted the outside world to see.
Once he and DJ Vlad brought up Michael Jackson regularly disguising himself, Akon told a story about going to the movies with Michael Jackson and everyone recognized Akon but didn’t realize Michael Jackson was in their presence the whole time. Akon also dismissed the pop icon’s pedophilia charges as propaganda due to the major moves Michael Jackson was making in the publishing world, as well as the battle for ownership of his own catalog.
