"That lil immigrant boy had faith !" wrote French, who was born in Morocco, before moving to the Bronx as a youngster. "Thank you to all my fans love y’all ( DOCUMENTARY COMING SOON )….. let’s make more history … a GOAL without a plan is a wish."

The news about his streaming numbers comes at a time when Africa's Afrobeat sound has gone mainstream and has seeped into various musical genres. 

In fact, Akon started a debate a couple of months ago after saying that African artists are better performers than American artists.
