The fear of Ebola is the beginning of Wisdom.
To avoid catching Ebola during a concert in Congo, R&B star Akon performed in a giant plastic bubble.
The ‘Locked Up’ singer climbed inside the airtight blow-up during a performance in Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on Sunday and rolled over the crowd, pushed along by the outstretched hands of 60,000 screaming concert-goers.
The concert was an effort to bring peace to the city of Goma, which many refer to as the most dangerous city in the world.
The performance was a part of a greater effort to support the United Nations’ International Day of Peace.
