Akon is coming to Lahore and Karachi in April and its for a football event.
If getting to see the Grammy award-winning artist Akon perform wasn’t enough, he’ll be doing it for World Soccer Stars 2019 event.
The Smack That singer will be arriving in Karachi and Lahore to perform concerts between April 26- 29.
On the other hand, football legends Ricardo Kaká and Luis Figo have already arrived in Karachi to promote the event. Both the Brazilian and Portuguese soccer players will stay in Pakistan while promoting the 2019 World Soccer Stars event.
The sports event is anticipated to have a star-studded football line-up. That paired with a global music icon Akon and you have the recipe for a great time.
Akon is going to perform in Pakistan
The 44-year-old R&B singer is pretty excited himself to be coming to Pakistan for the event.
“It’s time to rock Pakistan, I am looking forward to visiting Karachi and Lahore with TouchSky Group. So let’s get it down in Pakistan with World Soccer Stars”
A Pakistani act will be sharing the stage with Akon for the event. We’re excited to give our suggestions but will just have to wait it out till they name names.
All things considered, this event is a pretty big cultural win for Pakistan.
It is being organized in collaboration with British based TouchSky.
British Deputy High Commissioner Karachi and UK Trade Director for Pakistan Elin Burns is just as happy about this as we are.
“I am delighted that so much progress is taking place in the UK-Pakistan relationship this year. 2019 is geared up to be a historic year of collaboration between the UK and Pakistan in trade, education, sports and music. This is a testament to the UK’s commitment towards Pakistan’s prosperity. The UK based TouchSky Group shares our vision of supporting Pakistan and showcasing the many positive aspects of Pakistan to the world.”
