No stranger to the wrath of the Smoking Gun, Akon told MTV he still supports Clef’s charity despite the accusations levied at the Haitian MC yesterday.

“A lot of times, things like [critiques of Wyclef’s organization] are really irrelevant,” Akon told MTV News. “Because it’s obvious he’s trying to do good. Especially for Haiti, his loyalty to Haiti, you can’t really question. In the beginning his foundation was in the start-up stages and he had to get the team together, he had to find the right staff and crew that could actually handle those things. He had a lot on his plate. Naturally, of course, when you have a lot on your plate, you’re an entertainer and you’re moving around performing and doing humanitarian acts through the world, it’s gonna be hard to keep an eye on everything with your foundation. Some things are gonna slip through the cracks. But I don’t think that’s fair to put him under the gun for things like that because at the end of the day, you know where his heart is.”
