Akon is thrilled about the offer and is working hard on his music. He revealed that he was honoured to get hired to direct the music for a big event like forthcoming football world cup.
"I've been hired as musical director for the World Cup. I will be overseeing the World Cup anthem and music at the ceremonies and I'm off to South Africa this week for meetings. I love soccer, so it's a great honour," Contactmusic quoted Akon as saying.
