Well, the singer had announced about this city in the year 2018. The ‘Akon City’ will be built on a 2,000-acre land gifted to him by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall.
In an interview earlier, Akon revealed:
“It’s a 10-year building block so we’re doing it in stages. We started construction in March  and stage two is going to be 2025. “
Well, the ‘Akon city’ will have the singer’s own cryptocurrency called Akoin, which is expected to launch in early July, this year.
In the rest of 2020, the singer is planning to expand Akoin, find partners and continue to develop the crypto-city designs of the ‘Akon City’.
Talking about his professional front, in the year 2014, Akon stepped down from the music industry in order to work on his project titled ‘the Akon Lighting Africa project’, which provides electricity to almost 15 countries in Africa.
Here, check out the reactions of Netizens on this:
And someone was shouting when Akon called Wizkid his lil bro. Both the person that was shouting and Wizkid are his sons. He’s their Daddy!
What have the both of them ever done for this country? https://t.co/jLu9ShRAhU
