Akon has finalized a deal to develop his own city in his home country of Senegal. The activist, businessman and rapper says he plans for Akon City to be packed with “futuristic technology” like in the Black Panther fictional location of Wakanda.
Akon continues, “I’m already in Africa so we can build everything from Africa without having to use resources outside. I want it all to be based on tomorrow’s technology.” Akon will build an airport in the city that will run on his Akoin cryptocurrency. Akon explains that he’s doing this for the greater good, “I want business to be able to come and make it a headquarters for the whole of Africa.”
