American singer and songwriter Akon, who will visit Pakistan to kick off the World Soccer Stars event with concerts in Karachi and Lahore between April 26 and 29, has joined in the campaign to collect donations for the Basha and Mohmand dam funds.
Taking to Twitter on Monday, the “Smack That” and “Chammak Challo” singer shared a video to encourage Pakistanis to donate to their future.
“This is a special message to all Pakistanis around the world, according to a United Nations report, water resources in the country will dry up by 2025, so I’m asking all Pakistanis living in the country and overseas to support the Diamer and Bhasha dam. So we can mobilise Pakistan into a better future,” he said.

Earlier on Sunday, the singer had given a shout out to Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan.
“Yo, Imran Khan, It’s ya boy Akon, I’m looking forward to coming to Pakistan, are you ready for me,” Akon said in a video message on Twitter.
