Nigerians are the world’s smartest people, according to Senegalese singer Akon.
Akon stated this during a program hosted by NORE and DJ EFN. According to Akon, Nigeria produces more millionaires than any other country in the world.
“Nigerians are the smartest people on the planet, I promise you there is nobody more smarter than a Nigerian. There’s more billionaires being made in Nigeria than anywhere in the world”

In his words, the “Go Africa” singer said; “This could be debatable, but the Nigerians are the smartest people on the planet. I promise you, there is nobody smarter than a Nigerian.”
He, however, acknowledges that Nigerians are good and smart people but the “bad Apples” are the ones painting the country in back colours
He said, “Of course, there are a few bad apples that came out. The bad ones are extremely smart. But they put their intelligence all in the wrong place.
“If they were to gear that towards something more positive or productive… Because the ones that did, there are more billionaires being made in Nigeria than anywhere in the world.”
Akon is well renowned for his adoration and love of all things African, and he has never failed to show this at every possible chance.
