Akon's Employee Robbed at Gunpoint

3/25/2009 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of Akon's employees got a special visit last night -- from some home invasion robbers.

TMZ has learned four to five "black males" -- brandishing firearms -- rolled into a Van Nuys home occupied by a man who works for Akon last night and took a bunch of his stuff, including expensive stereo and recording equipment. Total heist value: $300,000.

We're also told keys to a Mercedes were stolen.

We're told detectives are on the scene right now.

I wonder why black males was in quotations? In any case, what's a simple $300K to Akon anyhow?

Who really cares? Akorn is a jerk and has no talent. He probably staged the whole thing so he could get back into some type of spotlight.

They are all a bunch of thugs. It's about time that we stop enabling these hoods. Don't buy their music. Especially anyone that Suge Knights is involved with. He might as well be mafia.
