A concert worker at an Akon show back in 2009 is suing Akon for stage diving and landing on top of him, leaving him physically disabled.
AkonÂ may deliver a quality performanceÂ for his fans, butÂ forÂ concert workers there appears to be a risk of injury. The singer is currently being sued by a concert workerÂ who says he's physically disabledÂ due to an injury Akon caused when he stage dove right on top of him.Â
Matthew Graham filed the lawsuit against Akon, claiming that he was working atÂ the singer's show at BayFest music festival in AlabamaÂ in 2009 when AkonÂ "negligently or wantonly leapt into the overcrowded mass of concertgoers" and hit him.
Graham says the incidentÂ resulted in severe damage to hisÂ knee, back, head, and body, so that he is now physically disabled, although he did not detail the extent of his disablity.
Footage of the stage dive incident can be seen below.
