Video: No One Bursts Akon's Bubble In Abu Dhabi

Americans hip hop, pop and R&B artist Akon wanted to give his fans in the Gulf's city Abu Dhabi's more than your average concert, and treat it was. Akon ha performed in other Arabic speaking countries before but no other Arab capital seen this before. The rapper bounced on top of his concert goers inside a gigantic clear bubble.

I gotta say, this must have been the most thrilling performance at that "Ya Salam" music festival in Abu Dhabi, the fans loved it and were on cloud nine as they get to come really close to the artist. His show took place on  November 1 and close to 100 thousand people were in attendance. I would have been worried about getting dizzy or worse throwing up, something Akon seems not to be worried about.

Akon was dancing, singing and living it up all for the enjoyment of those screaming fans who came from all over the world.

Akon entertained the attendant for an hour.  His act was followed by a performance by Tamer Hosny.

P.S. I did not know that Akon is originally from the West African nation Senegal, a place he calls "Hometown". Only to move to New Jersey at age seven.
