Akon stole hearts with his talents and appearance in the early 2000s, but he no longer resembles the young Akon who graced our screens and stages.

The Senegalese-American singer, who began his music career in 2003, shot to fame in 2004 with the release of Locked Up.

The singer is now primarily focused on business and philanthropy and has not been seen as frequently on our screens.

Akon, now 47, has bulked up a little and has a few gray hairs. He is, however, just as attractive.
