‘Chammak Chalo’ singer Akon to perform in Karachi and Lahore


After making waves across the globe for his hit singles such as ‘Smack That’ and for his Bollywood stint with Kareena Kapoor and Shah Rukh Khan for ‘Chammak Chalo,’ Senegalese-American singer Akon is now all set to perform in Pakistan in April.

Part of the celebrations which will kick off  the 2019 World Soccer Stars in April for which Football legends Ricardo Kaká and Luis Figo arrived in Karachi on Thursday, a recently-released press statement revealed that the ‘I Wanna Love You‘ singer will also be arriving in Karachi and Lahore to perform concerts between April 26- 29 this year.

“It’s time to rock Pakistan, I am looking forward to visiting Karachi and Lahore with TouchSky Group,” the statement read. “So let’s get it down in Pakistan with World Soccer Stars.”

Although not much has been revealed about the concert as of yet, we’re sure an international icon like Akon performing will be a delight to witness.
