American R-n-B star Akon paid President Uhuru Kenyatta a courtesy visit at the president’s residence in Washington DC yesterday.

No word yet on what was discussed but the photos posted by the President’s personal assistant Jomo Gecaga show the two were happy to meet each other.

The photos have the two embracing each other as they check Akon’s Twitter feed according to the caption.

Akon is on a campaign to “Light up Africa” through his “Akon Lighting Africa Project” which aims to bring electricity to one million households in Africa by the end of 2014.

We are pretty sure that was on the agenda.
