    Well, depending on how holier you are than me, you may rather ask which of these two make the worst apology song. But the fact that these two music stars released hit songs to make a bad situation look better for them, takes tact that only a few of their contemporaries have.

    When Senegalese singer Akon came under public scrutiny for dancing lewdly with an under-aged Danah Alleyne, daughter of a local pastor, at the Zen nightclub in Port of Spain he decided to do a song to apologize for his actions.

    “Blame It On Me” became an international hit and was put on his re-released album, ‘Konvicted’.  But had the R&B star truly regretted his actions?

    Check out these lyrics:

    As life goes on I’m starting to learn more and more about responsibility

    I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me

    So I want to take this time out and apologize for things I have done

    And things that have not occurred yet

    And the things they don’t want to take responsibility for

    Interesting right? Wait there is more:

    I’m sorry that it took so long to see

    They were dead wrong trying to put it on me

    I’m sorry that it took so long to speak

    But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani

    I’m sorry for the hand that she was dealt

    For the embarrassment that she felt

    Just a little young girl trying to have fun

    Her daddy should never let her out that young

    I’m sorry for Club Zen getting shut down

    I hope they manage better next time around

    How was I to know she was underage

    Enter 21 you know the club they say

    Why doesn’t anybody wanna take blame

    For rising back out disgracing my name

    I’m just a singer trying to entertain

    Because I love my fans I’ll take that blame

    Even though the blame’s on you [3x]

    I’ll take that blame from you

    When Ghanaian king of dancehall, Samimi was reported to have engaged two women in 2 years without breaking off with either of them, he responded much differently.Watch Sweet Mistake by Samini

    Samini didn’t necessarily do a song to a address the situation but he released a video for his song, ‘Sweetest Mistake’/ so what kind of mistake could be so sweet?

    Check out the lyrics:

    She has a boyfriend, I’ve got girlfriends

    We were just friends, so I didn’t intend
    To make the rules then, I made moves then

    She felt it smooth like she wanna get the groove on

    Oh, what a sweet mistake, she say she wanna do it again

    She like the way I roll, she no dey want my dough

    She just dey love my show, she say I no be slow

    She simply wanna know if she could get to go to paradise with me like I be saying in my flows

    She say I be the reason why she move to DC….

    I no dey like to take another man girl

    Go back to him and stop to bother my world

    I got my wife, and my kids and my girls

    And every other day, I see more single girls

    Big girls, deep girls, and simple girls

    Almighty bless my world with many many girls

    Oh, what a big mistake! confess to your boy and be realistic
