American rapper, Akon has reacted to the news making rounds about him presenting a fake wristwatch to French Montana as a birthday gift.
It would be recalled that Montana in an interview with DJ Funk Flex, allegedly accused Akon of gifting him a ‘fake wristwatch’.
While addressing his music contract with Akon’s label, Flex brought up the fake wristwatch story, saying; “We can’t tell the watch story, don’t tell it now,” which forced French to weigh in on it.
“Oh, Stop!” French said, as he laughed so hard. “Shouts to Akon, he gave me a fake watch for my birthday, I’m heated,” he said, laughing again. He continued: “I’m still waiting for my other watch Akon,” French said.
“Akon I need you to fix this up,” Flex added. “Keep it a buck. Listen, we gonna go on the ‘gram, we gon’ tell fake watch busters to leave you alone, they not gonna post this up. But, we gotta clear this up.”
As French laughed, he continued with the story, “It was my birthday too,” he said. “He was like, ‘Close your eyes, I got a present for you,'” French recalled. “Then he put a fake watch on my wrist, I’m heated.”
When Flex asked if French knew the watch was fake at the time, the rapper said: “Nah, I didn’t know it was fake.”
In his reaction to the fake wristwatch allegation, Akon tweeted; “Be careful what you read on entertainment mags and blogs. They are very desperate for clicks and hits these days.”
