11:24 PM PT— Akon just set the record straight — saying he fell on purpose to crowd surf and get extra close with his fans — he also posted a video from an alternate angle to support his claim.
Akon fell for Canada … and he really struggled to get up.
The singer was in the middle of a performance Sunday night at The Ranch Roadhouse in Edmonton when he decided to do a little crowd surfing.
No big deal … it’s what artists do — but when Akon hopped up on the shoulders of a couple fans things started going downhill fast. We can laugh now, because he eventually resurfaced … unscathed. We think.
And his reaction to getting swallowed up by the crowd was the best — Akon just tried to catch another wave! If at first you don’t succeed … eh?
Still way safer than XXXTentacion‘s crowd interaction …
