Akon City in Senegal

Is this our real life Wakanda? Singer Akon has truly become one of the greatest philanthropist of our time.

Akon, who is of Senegalese descent originally made his announcement for this amazing futuristic "Crypto city" that would be in his homeland Senegal back in 2018. Akon was quoted saying that the city would be built on a 2,000-acre land gifted to him by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall. When this announced were we really ready for things to move so quickly?

"Building legacy and making impact."

Earlier this week the rapper and entrepreneur made a tweet that he had finalized the agreement for the new city.

"Looking forward to hosting you there in the future," his tweet read.

Who else is packing their bags as we speak? *Excited*

Another fun fact to know about this new city is that they will trade exclusively in his own digital cash currency called AKoin. Now that is a huge game changer!

Also according to the official website for the city they say that it will be a five-minute drive from the West African state's new international airport. So when you fly in the commute to the new city won't be a hassle at all.

In addition to this wonderful news about Akon City;

Akon previously set up the humanitarian foundation Akon Lighting Africa, which has won recognition from the UN for its work financing solar projects in the continent.

Research shows that the charity is currently working on projects in 25 African nations.

We are so proud of this brother!

Thank you Akon, and you may you continue to push the limit on excellence!
