In a recent interview with Funkmaster Flex, French Montana has revealed how he discovered that singer Akon gave him a fake watch as a birthday gift. French who was once signed to Akon for a “six month thing” revealed other interesting details involving his association with Akon which he is very grateful for.
Flex wanted to get the record straight on a watch story, so he jumped right in and asked French to tell what really went down with the alleged fake watch gift.
“We can’t tell the watch story, don’t tell it now,” said Flex.
“Oh, Stop! Shouts to Akon, he gave me a fake watch for my birthday, I’m heated. I’m still waiting for my other watch Akon,” French said laughing.
French did make it clear that he has love for Akon, but you know Flex still had to instigate the situation.
“Akon I need you to fix this up. 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,” said Flex.
French went on to explain the story,
“It was my birthday too. He was like, ‘Close your eyes, I got a present for you. Then he put a fake watch on my wrist, I’m heated,” said French.
Flex asked French if he knew it was fake at the time to which French replied saying,
“Nah, I didn’t know it was fake.”
French said he took the watch to a jewelers to be be cleaned and the jeweler asked where he got the watch from. When French told them Akon, the jeweler laughed in disbelief because he knew Akon.
It’s been 10 years Akon, and French is still waiting on his watch! However, it could be actually that Akon didn’t know that the watch he got him was fake.
