Akon Does Not Regret Passing On Signing Drake
A TMZ photographer caught Akon outside of an airport and asked him about not scooping Drake when he had the chance. Akon passed on Drake back in 2005 when he was still known more for playing Wheelchair Jimmy on Degrassi rather than being a hitmaking machine.
"At the time when I passed on him, he wasn't what he is today. He grew into the incredible artist. Everybody has a starting point," Akon said. "At that time, he wasn't ready, in my opinion."
Akon went on to say that he doesn't think about how much money he could've made with Drake because "not everything is meant to travel through you." Read more here.
