The well known Senegalese singer known in the hip hop music world as Akon, is said to have recently presented over $100,000 worth diamond watch to his Ethiopian mother-in-law, APA reported on Sunday Feb 15/2009.

Akon, who is married to an Ethiopian wife a few years ago presented the gift to his mother-in-law during her 40th birthday celebrations.

The news came as a surprise to a majority of people in Ethiopia where there is no such habit (culture) of celebrating birthdays, let alone making such expensive birthday gifts.

Akon, based in the United States got married to Rosina Bruck a few years ago, and they have a new baby- boy- born at the end of 2008.

Rosina is a designer, known for her best design clothes for famous musicians based in the USA.(APA)
