AceShowbiz - Akon wishes to keep his family protected from the public eye, but he has been quite outspoken about his views on monogamy. Coming from a polygamous Senegalese family, where his father had four wives, the "Right Now (Na Na Na)" hitmaker told TMZ, "Women aren't built to breed like that or mate with more than one partner. Women aren't built that way, men are."
The three-time Grammy nominee further elaborated his stance on relationship on the Angie Martinez show in 2006. "I'm a polygamist," he stated. "I can afford to have as many wives as I can afford to have. All Africans believe in it. My dad has four wives."
