A hip hop and R&B singer, songwriter, and record producer, Akon is set to add television producer to his resume as he's about to launch a new reality TV show and is having his two brothers starring in.

The TV show, to be titled "My Brother's Keeper," will follow Akon's brothers as they parade around town posing as the singer and reaping the benefits that come with being a superstar. The "Smack That" singer claimed to get the idea for the show after seeing fans' reactions whenever they go out in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

"They are going around getting VIP treatment, girls, free food at restaurants, free everything and everybody is falling for it," Akon said. "It's a real life thing, which has got really out of hand in Atlanta, so I decided to take the situation and make it into my advantage by making a reality TV show out of it."

There have yet details on when and where the TV show will be aired.

Akon rose to fame in 2004 following the release of his single "Locked Up" from his debut album "Trouble". His second album, "Konvicted," earned him a Grammy Award nomination for the single "Smack That".
