Singer Akon took to social media to announce he has finalised an agreement with Senegalese officials for the establishment of Akon City. The City will have an airport, more Akon Lighting Africa solar power projects, and his own cryptocurrency, Akoin will be used in the city in Senegal.
The city has been in construction phase since March 2019. “We started construction in March, and stage two is going to be 2025. It’s in Senegal, West Africa”. Akon explained to Nick Cannon, during an interview. He also revelled the economy would be based in Akoin. While the whole thing feels surreal, rest assured that Akon City is happening in the nearest future.
Congratulations to Akon for doing his part to make the world a better place.
