Rapper Akon is totally confused about his age. His birth certificate suggests he was born in April 1977, but he refuses to believe he is 31 years old and insists he is in his 20s.

"In Africa... age is not important. They don't care. I feel like I'm 21 right now, and I'll be 21 for the next 10 years," said Akon.

The Smack that singer also said that he has no interest in checking his age, reports contactmusic.com.

"All it's going to do is depress me. I don't want to know I'm getting older. Then I'll start to think about getting check-ups and insurance. I don't want that."
