Akon Explains Why He Has Multiple Wives

Back in 2013 Rapper Akon admitted on Angie Martinez’s radio show that he has — not one but four wives. The rapper went on record to say, he can afford to have as many wives as he wants, which is how he was raised. His father has four wives.

“Marriage just solidifies a relationship between a man and a woman spiritually under God’s eyes. So, I can be spiritually attached to her, and still be spiritually attached to [another woman], and still be spiritually attached to [another woman]” the rapper explained.

Although Akon was born in the US, he was raised in Senegal, Africa, where polygamy is heavily practiced, until he was seven.

According to a report on Starpulse after the interview, the polygamist has been banned from talking about his personal life by his record label, for fear of backlash against him.

After the interview Akon spoke with Allhiphop.com and explained how he felt his true fans would be okay with the revelation, ” I got enough fans out there, I got a lot of supporters I can get open with them. But things got heated. It started affecting other people that had nothing to do with us. Because of that, (the label) said they don’t want me to promote that aspect, and I can’t talk about that too much because it’s destroying other people’s families and other things. I said, ‘OK, no problem,’ he said. “People do judge you by your beliefs and how you think. It’s a free country, but it’s really not free,”he added.

Rachel Ritfield, who was set to walk down the aisle and become wifey number four back in 2008 said she had to break it off with the rapper because she couldn’t put herself through the pain. “Why can’t I be one of those women who have a normal relationship and have a family,” she told The ‘Voice.’ Ritfield feared that he could later meet wife number five, which would no longer make her his favorite.

The now 29 year old,  adds she was supportive in the beginning but  began to question if she was taking him into consideration and he was taking his family into consideration, who was taking her into consideration? The answer she eventually came to believe was ‘nobody.’

Hmmm, good thing she woke up, ijs.

Polygamy is illegal in the Unites States, however, it is secretly practiced in Utah and its neighboring states. In fact, it’s estimated that 30,000 to 60,000 polygamists live in that region [source: Signature Books Library].  The practice was outlawed by the federal government in 1862, forbidding the practice in all U.S. territories.

Rachel Ritfield, who was set to become Mrs Thiam or wife number four to the R&B star Akon, has hit the road, saying that she wants one man.”I’m not a bad person, I don’t do anything to hurt anybody else so why can’t I be one of those women who have a normal relationship and have a family?,” she tells The Voice about the break up of her relationship with Akon.The 5’11″ model who was the face of street label Akademiks, added that she couldn’t walk up the aisle and exchange vows, despite being in love with the Senegalese singer.Ritfield feared that he could later meet wife number five, which would no longer make her his favorite – and hearing the news about the birth of his fifth child to one of his other wives, woke her up from a two-year love dream.”The reality check really came when Akon told me he had his fifth child with one of his wives. For the first few months I got completely freaked out because even though I knew he had other wives, I never really thought about him being with them because his main attention was always on me – or so I thought.”

“He does not live with his wives but the birth of his latest child made everything become real and made me realize that I would always have to share the man I love while accepting his other relationships.”

“At first I was very supportive but I began to question that if I was taking him into consideration and he was taking his family into consideration, who was taking me into consideration? The answer was ‘nobody’ so I decided I could no longer be apart of Akon’s world.”

Ritfield, who came from a violent abusive past, says Akon was like a breath of fresh air for her.

“Nothing was an issue,” she says. “I came from a past that was very dramatic and scary into a relationship that appeared to be perfect.”

Will Bill Cosby revive the sitcom genre, again? I for one, sure hope so – good ole family TV…just like the Huxtables — love, life and laughter.

According to Deadline.com,  Cosby, 76, has made a deal with NBC to develop a half-hour comedy starring the actor and notably, he’s partnering once again with producer Tom Werner, of Cosby Show fame. The outlet goes on record to say, Cosby will soon be meeting with possible writers. “They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness,” so I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby.”

Drake: Blue Ivy Is Not on the Cover Art of My Album ‘Nothing Was the Same’

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter | EOTM.Media on Facebook

Hip hop artist Drake paying homage to Blue Ivy on the cover of his new CD? He says NO! The “Started from the Bottom” rapper unveiled the art last week; created by artist Kadir Nelson, the image portrays Drake against a cloudy blue sky facing a young African-American child. Some fans on Twitter half-jokingly wondered why Beyonce and Jayz Z’s firstborn made an appearance on the cover. “Why is Blue Ivy on Drake’s album cover?” one fan tweeted. “Drake put Blue Ivy Carter on his new album art #notmad,” another wrote.

Well who is the child on the cover, you ask? A younger version of the rapper according to MTV.

“It’s a child version of myself staring at myself now. Sometimes when I try and think back on this journey, it’s so hard to pinpoint allof these moments and it gets foggy,” explains Drake.

The rapper and Blue does share a striking resemblance…see Blue and Beyonce below.

 ”Even on past albums when I’ve been trying to tell this story, I’ve got there, but maybe not got there all the way and what that album art is to me is, like, this is my most clean, concise thoughts from now, and my best recollection of then. That’s really what that cover’s about,” he added.
