Entertainer Akon is back again seeking to build impact in the world, starting with Africa. He and his partners Samba Bathily and Thione Niang have launched Akon Lighting Africa, an innovative initiative focusing on beyond-the-grid investment in Africa.

Solektra International plans to introduce the initiative to delegates attending the Powering Africa: Summit conference in Washington D.C. next week that is being organized by EnergyNet and will draw global leaders to discuss investment in Africa’s power sector.

“It’s very exciting that Solektra will join Energy Ministers and Director Generals from Egypt, South Africa, Nigeria, Mozambique, DRC, Namibia, and Madagascar and more to promote these kinds of creative solutions — after all, it is these leaders who will write and implement the vision of government and be responsible for project realisation,” said Simon Gosling, Managing Director of EnergyNet, in a news release.
