Akan was born a prince in his home country, Ivory Coast. His acting career started early, with a lead role in the TV series Teenager. He survived a civil War and despite the demands of acting, he came top in his year at school. This allowed him to travel to France and Cape Town to complete three degrees. It was in Paris that Akan was scouted as a model. 

He is equally comfortable on the catwalk of Paris Fashion Week or as the face of a major campaign. Akan has featured in magazines like GQ and continues to represent major brands such as: Hugo Boss, Burberry, Puma, Orlebar Brown, Off-White, Balmain and Chivas Regal. 
Acting work continued, with a lead role in the French language series, Assinie. Fluent in French and English, Akan landed another lead role in the series Agent, which is currently showing on Netflix. 
Akan is also a talented singer, and finds time for many different sports. He describes his personal style as sprezzatura meets high fashion. During the Covid lockdown, Akan reinvented himself as an influencer. Work poured in from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, Armani, Lacoste, Ted Baker, French Connection, Hunter Boots, to name but a few. Akan taught himself how to create content to the highest industry standards, including stills, video and text. He always aims to exceed expectations and has invested in his art, with a home studio in his rooftop apartment in East London.
