Between setting up his own cryptocurrency AKoin and vowing to bring electricity to 600 million people in Africa, Akon has been quietly building his own ‘futuristic’ city in Senegal named after himself.
He previously revealed that he was working on creating a “100% crypto-based city,” and in November 2019, he shared on Nick Cannon’s radio show Power 106 Los Angeles that building is already under way. The city has been named Akon City.
Akon City is intended to be a “100% crypto-based city with AKoin at the center of transactional life”, described as a “real-life Wakanda”.
