R&B singer Akon
found himself at the center of a frightening scene in London recently - when an encounter with fans went awry.
The Smack That
hit-maker was strolling through the city center this weekend when several members of the public approached the star. But the sighting sparked a fan frenzy and after being mobbed, Akon was forced to take shelter in a nearby fast food restaurant. And the star had to be smuggled out of the building's back entrance after the surging mob of fans shattered a window.
He says, "The intention was to go and watch a movie, but as we were walking there I spotted this little catfight in the middle of the street. It was really funny so I started filming it on my phone."
"I forgot who I was for a second, and people started to notice me - before I knew it I was being mobbed by about 300 fans. I had to run to the nearby Burger King, but it got so crazy with people following that a window ended up getting smashed. They had to sneak us out the back and I never did get to see that film."
