Akon has some words of advice for women on how to deal with men.

The accomplished singer and producer recently appeared on Hollywood Today Live to share his thoughts on everything from the 2016 BET Awards to his music catalogue of hits and he had plenty to say when co-host Garcelle Beauvais touched on the topic of men being “natural breeders,” as stated by Akon in a previous interview. 

“Just think of life. Why is it that every woman in the world is going through the same exact problem with a man? Think about it,” he said. “It’s not a science…it’s not a coincidence…it’s who we are.”

Elaborating further, Akon says he believes that women gaining a better understanding of the way men operate would result in women being at the helm of world dominance. “I always believed that if women took the time to understand men, you literally would run the world. The only reason why men are more dominant is because we know more about women than women know about men.” Hear what else he had to say on the subject in the full video clip of the interview below.

Some women might ask who told Akon that women don’t run the world already, what with the potential first female President within months of making history (again) and all, but we digress. Ladies, what do you think about Akon’s comments? Do you agree or disagree?
