The music executive stated this in a radio interview as he lamented about the challenges associated with having money.
According to the ‘Lonely’ hitmaker, money does not necessarily buy happiness as it largely depends on what makes one happy.
Akon also stated that people who have money do not have time as it makes you lose yourself and takes you away from your family.
He further explained that since money makes people unable to find time for their family, then that is no comfort.
Akon said, “Money brings you more problems than it brings comfort. You lose yourself. You can’t find time for your family. That’s no comfort.”
