Kon sparks outrage by declaring that men are the “divine kings of the universe”, with women only here to support them.
The Mr. Lonely singer recently shared his controversial views on gender roles on The Joe Budden Podcast.
He also asserts that men are capable of producing children without women, claiming that all they need is sperm and an incubator.
“Let me tell you the science of it,” he said. “Right now a man can make a life without a woman, but a woman cannot make a life without a man.
“If I wanted to do it now, I’d shoot up my sperm and put it in an incubator and give it nine months, probably less than with today’s science, and a baby would be born.
“A woman cannot do that. That’s why we men are actually the creators of life… We are gods, we are the creators of life.”
The 49-year-old also claimed that African women “treat you like a man, like a king,” compared to American women.
Akon, who is Senegalese-American, said: “They’re not competing with you or fighting for equality because they understand that men and women can never be equal. They understand their roles.
“The roles over there are more very defined and very clear, here (America) even if I say, ‘Play your role and you play mine’, they say, ‘What the fuck do you mean play my role? What role? ?’…
“It’s very clear in Africa, the woman plays the role of the woman. As a woman, her role is to support the man.
“Men are the kings and gods of this universe, a woman can never compare to a man.
“They have to understand that here in America,” he continued. “Here in America men are afraid of their power….”
He also insisted that women were “naturally” made to endure the pain caused by men and to be loyal to them.
Many took to social media to condemn his views.
One said: “‘It’s shocking how many people believe that babies come from sperm and womb. “Like your grandmother didn’t have half your DNA months before your mother was born. Sir!”
Another wrote: ‘Technically all men could die and women could repopulate the world with frozen sperm from dead men.
“He had it backwards..” Another wrote: “I’m amazed! Akon. Sweetheart. How come you don’t know how babies work? Imagine being this loud and wrong in public?!
Akon, whose last hit was 2007’s Smack That, has been making a number of controversial comments in recent months that have helped propel him back into the limelight.
He recently received backlash for defending Kanye West over his anti-Semitic rant, declaring that Nick Cannon was right for impregnating multiple women and revealing that he himself is in a polyamorous relationship.
