By Judith Gicobi

Akon, Senegalese-American artist whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, congratulated William Ruto, the winner of Kenya’s August general election.

Akon congratulated Dr. Ruto on his victory on social media after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairperson Wafula Chebukati made the announcement on Monday at the Bomas of Kenya.

“Congratulations to my dear brother William Ruto as he is declared winner of Presidential Election in Kenya,” he wrote on Instagram.

Akon praises the victory alongside Tanzanian Bongo star Diamond Platnumz, another influential figure in the musical industry.

Diamond underlined the significance of maintaining national unity and concentrating on the advancement of the country.

“Congratulations to Kenyans for concluding the electoral exercise and getting a president today. Right now, it’s not “team Ruto, Wajackoyah or team Raila Odinga” it is team Kenya. Right now together, we advance the development of Kenya and Kenyans in general.”

Additionally, gospel singer Emmy Kosgei, comedian Njugush, and DJ Joe Mfalme have all jumped on the laud bandwagon.

On the other hand, foreign leaders like Tanzania’s Samia Suluhu, South Sudan’s Salva Kiir, Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed, Zimbabwe’s Emmerson Mnangagwa, and Somalia’s former president Mohamed Farmajo congratulated the president-elect.
