According to the Auto Firm in South FL and TMZ, Akon ordered a 2014 Mercedes Sprinter from them a year ago and asked them to reinforce the vehicle in bulletproof armor. Akon wouldn’t say much about it initially, but now he’s saying it’s a gift for an African president, but he wouldn’t say which one. It could be for the president of Akon’s homeland of Senegal. A gift that costs $350K is quite a gift. The sprinter is said to have DirceTV, surround sound, and it’s completely iPad controlled.
