Akon has gifted French Montana a new watch after previously giving the “Lonely” hitmaker a fake Hublot for his birthday. The duo recently linked up overseas in their home continent of Africa, as seen in a video French shared of their meeting.
“Guess who I ran into,” he asked, panning to Akon and pointing out how “icy’ his friend was looking.
“That’s the watch, that’s my watch?” French asked before Akon replied, “You ain’t getting a watch this year. You getting something else.”
However, he was only joking. In another video, Akon presented French Montana with a new timepiece. “The word now is to make sure you get the watch in the box,” the Senegalese artist joked.
Although he said it’s time to put the joke to bed, French Montana isn’t taking any chances this time, tagging the FakeWatchBuster Instagram account to verify the new piece.
“Stop asking Akon about the watch,” he penned in the caption of the video. “he just pulled up on me and gave me another watch lol let’s see if he did right this time.”

“Me and French got got that day,” Akon said, explaining that he also bought a watch for himself from the same vendor but didn’t realize they were not authentic. “I’m the one that lost money. I bought two new watches — one for me and one for [French].”
