Born in Senegal as the last child of six to an accountant and a lawyer – Diop naturally followed the path to a “respectable” career. He studied finance and worked in the corporate world managing investor relations. But Diop felt that something was missing: “I didn’t have the drive and I didn’t have a purpose.” On a whim, he picked up a camera and found a new purpose through his lens.

Akon stopped by to talk with VladTV about his light up Africa Project, how he used to live without electricity, and how the politics of starting his project were extremely tricky. Akon let us know that he grew up in Senegal a small country on the West coast of Africa. Akon grew up without electricity and running water, and when it came time to eat, cook, or wash he had to use the same water from a running water well for everything.
