Haddy Faye in talks to bring Akon to The Gambia

The elegant fashionista and event organiser is embarking on an ambitious project. Haddy Faye, 27, is in talks to bring the Senegalese-American superstar, Akon to The Gambia for the first time.

According to a reliable source, the CEO of Absolute Entertainment had a meeting with the co-founder of the famous Akon Lighting Africa project, Thione Nyang, who was in the country to launch his book.

A source told What’s On-Gambia: “She met Thione to help get Akon have a concert at the Independence Stadium.”

Haddy is one of the wealthiest event organisers in the country. Last year, she had an almost sold out concert headlining Nigerian superstar, Wizkid.

Can she afford to pay Akon, Africa’s richest artist?

Haddy is not short of either ideas or backers. She might look for sponsorship from the country’s big companies, said our source. Her fiancé, Rafaat Al-Ahmar is one of the powerful men running Africell and they have been supporting her since she started Absolute Entertainment.
