Akon, the renowned singer, recently admitted to wearing a sweater with a logo resembling Dior's during his appearance on "Drink Champs" in July. However, fans were quick to point out that the sweater's logo spelled "Drio" instead of "Dior."
This led to a lot of online chatter and speculation. In a recent interaction with fellow artist French Montana, Akon revealed that he wore the "Drio" sweater intentionally to increase online engagement. He mentioned that he got the sweater from one of his African contacts and wore it as a gesture of support.
Akon's intention was to get people talking, and he succeeded in doing so. He further expressed his commitment to representing his African roots and gave a shoutout to "Lil Senegal" in Harlem.
