Akon set to present radio show
Akon is taking to the airwaves - as he becomes a presenter for 95.8 Capital FM.
The Grammy-nominated star will add another string to his bow as he takes on hosting duties on a weekly Saturday evening show, from February 13.
"I'm really excited to be joining Capital FM to host my own radio show - I'm a big fan of the station and I love London," he said.
"Every Saturday night, I'm going to be playing the best tracks and I look forward to my fans getting to know the real me, so make sure you tune in!"
The evening slot is currently hosted by Dave Kelly, who will continue to present the weekday late-night show on the station.
