If you love music, there is all the chance in the world, that you have heard of Akon. He is literally the music expert! The number of times he has made us cry with Mr Lonely, and the amounts of times he has made us dance on Smack That is crazy. Akon hit the music scene in 2005 and since then he has been only giving chartbusters.
Here, recall that memory of yours!
Now apart from his music that makes the news, Akon has come into news for different reasons this time. The reason is bizarre. But well, here we go. Akon is building his own crypto city in Africa. The city will have a cryptocurrency. Surprised? Well, yes we were too!
To begin with, there were so numerous questions about the rumour. However, now Akon has confirmed the news on his Twitter handle. So it really is happening. He wrote “Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future”. Well, who will be visiting the city? We wonder.

In 2018, according to a leading new channel Akon City was supposed to be as big as 2,000 acres big. The channel gave the information that this was in fact a present from Macky Sall, the president of Senegal. Well, who would not want such an amazin gift? Guys, start showing this to your friends, this is what a real gift looks like! *wink wink*
According to reports, the city will be five minutes away from the country’s international airport.
Akoin is the cryptocurrency that will be used there. The name is quite fancy if the cryptocurrency as it has come out of Akon’s name. Creative, hell yes! But it is still not known what will be the actual worth of Akon’s currency.
Akon city will be run by renewable energy and is the perfect definition of an “Eco-Tourism Destination”.
Now let us tell you a little about Senegal. In spite of noteworthy financial development and decades of political solidness, Senegal still faces genuine improvement challenges. More than one-third of the populace lives underneath the destitution line, and 75 percent of families endure from persistent poverty.
However, let us have a look at the West African country.
It does look beautiful, indeed! All the more reasons to visit te country now. It looks quite lovely with all the watery vibes. And who knows, you may even see a glimpse of Akon himself there. You never know, you can always try your luck!
One thing is for sure that now the tourism to the country will be taking a positive dive for sure. Akon is the first singer to take such a huge step. We are hoping it turns out to be a good decision for him. The African star is definitely seen giving back to his people.
The singer had earlier decided to seriously diversify and set up charity Akon Lighting Africa in 2014. The singer, who is of Senegalese-American descent, has recently opened a Solar Academy as part of his effort to bring electricity to 600 million people in rural communities across Africa. So we know, Akon has a heart of gold since the beginning. He is and should be the inspiration for many who want to help people but are just waiting for the right time.
