It’s official; Akon now has a city in Senegal called “Akon City”. He announced that he has finalized an agreement for the establishment in an Instagram post. He wrote:
“Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future”.
In an interview with Nick Cannon back in December, Akon shared this information about Akon City.
He said: It’s a 10-year building block so we’re doing it in stages,” he said at the time. “We started construction in March and stage two is going to be 2025.
Elsewhere in the Power 106 chat, Akon criticized billionaires who haven’t put their money toward similar efforts.
“If you can have a billion dollars sitting in the bank, while you have all these people suffering, it’s crazy to me. It’s like a waste of a billion dollars,” he said.
