Britain's Prince Harry has been offered rapping lessons. "Lonely" singer Akon says he is a big fan of the 24-year-old prince and hopes they can meet up when he visits London so he can share his skills with Harry.
He told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Prince Harry is the man. I want to hook up with him when I'm in London as I heard he is a fan."
"When we do meet I'm gonna teach him to rap. It may be a harder task than I thought. But he looks like he's got rhythm."
Music-loving Harry was reportedly upset earlier this year after his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, banned him from joining girlfriend Chelsy Davy at a DJ-ing event in a Leeds nightclub.
Organizer Dan Blackledge said: "We have sent a record bag invite to Chelsy as she is a fan of the Wax: On Live night. I can guarantee it will be an interesting VIP area - we can't wait!"
A source added: "Harry is a big follower of Reverend and the Makers, who are one of the 60 acts who will be performing at the event. He's brilliantly annoyed about being banned from DJ-ing with Chelsy. He'll be gutted if the queen bans him from partying altogether."
