He said: “I’m a proponent of the right to believe what you want to believe. Now, the day he and I talk, I’ll give him my point of view as to why I disagree, and then he can come back and say, “You know what, you’re right,” or he might say that I it’s not. But I want to understand why he sees things that way. So I say communication and conversation are key, but sometimes we get blocked and you can’t get anywhere if you don’t communicate.”

When asked if it bothered him that West’s views were offensive to a lot of people, Akon replied, “Not really because those comments don’t really affect me personally, and I think if everyone takes it that way then it’s different. And if it’s affecting you personally, then find a way to actually respond in a way that can reciprocate that conversation.

“I think it’s really about both sides really understanding what it is and not taking things too personally until you understand the situation.”
