Akon gets his own city in Senegal known as

Rapper-Businessman Akon has officially created a city in Senegal named after him.

In an Instagram post of a photo from the deal-finalizing moment, Akon told fans he was looking forward to hosting them in the future.

By the time Akon City is complete, however, Senegal's latest global airport will be officially opened just a ten-minute drive away. It is set on a 2,000-acre parcel gifted by the Senegalese president. It's called Akon City, it has its own cryptocurrency, it's apparently a five-minute-drive from the West African state's new worldwide airport, and he's looking forward to hosting us.

In an interview with Nick Cannon in November 2019, Akon said that construction on the city began past year and phase two is expected to begin in 2025. Mbodiene's location is advantageous because it means that the new city will be only five minutes away from the country's recently-built worldwide airport. Speaking on its progress he shared that "It's a 10-year building block so we're doing it in stages", he said.

The rapper envisions the city becoming like a real-life Wakanda, the fictional nation at the heart of Marvel's Black Panther stories, and apparently a trade partner of the U.S.

In a previous statement , the commission said it received a report from authorities in Thailand about a sick Chinese woman. The prospect of human-to-human transmission of a new virus has put Thai authorities on alert.

During the interview with Nick Cannon, Akon revealed that construction began in March 2019 and would take a decade to complete, where stage two would begin in 2025.

As Bitcoinist reported, Akon first announced Akoin back in 2018, along with the grand hope that it "could be the saviour of Africa".

It is that currency that will dominate the economy of the new Akon City. It is reported that the city which is called the "futuristic" city in Senegal, will run exclusively on renewable energy.

Africa is still the least developed continent in the world. His most recent venture is Akon Lighting Africa, a project that provides solar power to African countries.
