US-born Senegalese singer, Akon, has revealed that he is “the stingiest man on the planet.”

According to him, one has to be stingy to maintain his wealthy status.

While featuring as a guest in the latest episode of Impulsive Podcast, the ‘Blame It On Me’ crooner, said: “If you want to stay rich, stay stingy. I’m the stingiest man on the planet.”

He also advised colleagues and fans against owning a private jet if they want to “stay rich.”

“Whatever you do, do not own a (private) jet. Bro, owning a jet is spending at least 2-3 million dollars a year just for upkeep [maintenance]. You spend more on the maintenance than the actual jet cost.

“This is the advice I give everybody. The money that you have now has to last you a lifetime. When you reason it that way, you are going to be very prudent,” he said.

Akon, whose real name is Aliaune Badara Thiam, rose to prominence in 2004 following the release of “Locked Up”, the first single from his debut album “Trouble”, followed by the second single “Lonely”.
