CEO Akon has Lady Gaga to thank for lining his pockets for life! Since Lady Gaga’s rising fame as a global superstar, Akon has been laughing his way to the bank. Fortunately for him, he signed the 23-year-old to his KonLive label at Interscope Records in 2007 after she was dropped by another.
Now Akon says that due to Gaga’s unstoppable success, he can now retire because financially, he is now set for life. Nice for some that they can retire at a certain age. I guess that’s one of the few perks of working in the industry. Once the right decisions are made, the world is your oyster.
