Akon Turning His Life Into Biopic



Akon is turning his life story into hard-hitting new biopic "Illegal Alien", which will shed light on his early upbringing in Africa.

Akon has more than music to tell his fans. The R&B star has so far lived such a complicated yet interesting life which he is about to turn into hard-hitting new biopic.

Titled "Illegal Alien", the set will follow Akon's early upbringing in Africa. And for the sake of his new project, the hit maker reportedly is already lining up "8 Mile" star Mekhi Phifer to play him on screen.

Akon was born and raised in Senegal before his family moved to New Jersey, where he fell in love with urban music, as well as being attracted to crime.

"If people really knew my story, they'd be looking at me a whole other way. It's like City Of God, Menace II Society and Ray all in one movie", so he said on his forthcoming biopic. "I am from a whole other culture. There's a lot of good things in it and a lot of bad things."
