Popular rapper-producer-director Akhenaton has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 53rd birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Akhenaton, a cultural icon
Born Philippe Fragione in Marseille on September 17, 1968, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in French history.
