Your success as a singer, songwriter, and producer is nothing short of remarkable. I’m sure you never dreamed while a boy in Dakar, Senegal that one day your music would dominate record charts, or that you would perform with the likes of Michael Jackson, or earn an eight-figure income. You’ve been ranked among the most powerful celebrities in the world, and I’m sure your upcoming album will add to your long list of achievements.
True, your success wasn’t overnight or without controversy. But you seem to sincerely want to give back and do good in the world.
Moreover, you’re serious about investing in the continent that you call home. You write about it in songs. You talk about it in interviews. You even own a South African diamond mine.
Could we talk a little bit about that last one?
