Senegalese-born music superstar, Akon has reportedly purchased an 8-seater bullet-proof van for an unnamed African President.

It is being reported that the singer ordered a 2014 Mercedes Sprinter bulletproof van worth around $350,000 for the unnamed African leader.

It was further claimed that Akon had initially bought the car in 2014, but requested that the bullet proof feature be added to it, which is now ready.

The US-based hip hop star, according to Forbes, was among the 40 Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa in 2011.
