In spite of his cancelled Verizon AD campaign, Akon in the Mother's Day edition of "Jet" magazine reveals his gift to his mother, Kine Thiam:

"I bought my mother a car, the 750 BMW...I went from from being a troubled convict to a successful young man, a son she can brag about."


The current issue of "JET" features mother-son duo Dr Donde and Kanye West which you can read about over at [Urban-Hoopla].

And in related news, Akon has finally issued a public apology:

"First, and most important to me, I want to sincerely apologize for the embarrassment and any pain I've caused to the young woman who joined me on-stage, her family and the Trinidad community for the
events at my concert in Port of Spain on April 12th," Akon said via a statement. "It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met. Again, I apologize to those concerned and to all my fans and I pledge to all that we will strive to make sure this type of incident does not happen again."
