Even though hip hop star Akon has a birth certificate, he claims his age is still a mystery.
has no idea how old he is even though he has a birth certificate. His birth certificate suggests he was born in April, 1977, but the hip hop star refuses to believe he is 31. In 2006, the singer also revealed he's 25.

The "Smack That" hitmaker tells the Associated Press that he isn't interested in checking his age. "All it's going to do is depress me. I don't want to know I'm getting older. Then I'll start to think about getting check-ups and insurance. I don't want that," he says.

Akon even insists he feels 21 right now. "In Africa... age is not important. They don't care," explains the "Right Now (Na Na Na)" crooner. He adds, "I feel like I'm 21 right now, and I'll be 21 for the next 10 years."
