Akon seems unstoppable as he continues on his quest to conquer the world with his Konvict brand. From signing Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie, to having his Kon Live artist, Lady Gaga dominating the charts and him recording the leading single of Michael Jackson’s first posthumous album, to recording a single with one of India’s top producers.

After establishing links with top Indian actor/musician Sharukh Khan, Akon has part called India home and has been linked with movies and song releases. According to OneIndia website, Akon recently recorded a song and shot a video for an album that will be entitled “One for The World”. The same article also states that the album will be produced by Umesh Chug under Avinisiya Entertainment. Umesh Chug is Akon’s Indian partner and an accomplished producer. For the “One for The World” project, Umesh is said to have invited Akon to India, together with renowned director Aadesh Shrivastav who is also working on the project.

Prior to this development, Akon recorded a song with megastar Shahrukh Khan, for the Indian actor’s movie “Ra One”. Akon is said to have fluently sung in Hindi in the song. It is definitely one to look out for.
