Singer Akon ready to move into The Movie Business
Singer Akon To Start Producing Gangster Docu-Movies
Akon's Mega-hit single "Locked Up" helped him become a hot new breakout star in 2005. His subsequent hits and collaborations with Stylez-P, Young Jeezy and many others have kept him in the spotlight.
Akon's new music label Konvict Music has also done well recently with the successful addition of his own brother T-Pain (picture at left) with the mega-hit single I'm Sprung and the hit and album it subsequently sprung into the spotlight. But it seems there's a different spotlight Akon is now after...
Now, Akon is ready to lock up Hollywood with his newly formed entertainment company, Konvict Films. Akon mentioned "We'll be doing movies based on gangsters locked up in prison and presenting their whole life stories."Akon's first project will be the cautionary film Trouble, which he plans to shoot in 2006.
