In a bubble: The 'Locked Up' singer climbed inside the airtight blow-up during a performance in Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on Sunday

R&B star Akon has been accused of going to extreme lengths to avoid catching Ebola during a concert in Africa … by crowd-surfing inside a giant plastic bubble. The ‘Locked Up’ singer climbed inside the airtight blow-up during a performance in Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on Sunday and rolled over the crowd, pushed along by the outstretched hands of 60,000 screaming concert-goers.
