Akon on tweeter last week announced that he has finalized the aggreement for ‘AKON CITY’ in Senegal.
The city is expected to trade on the exclusive currency of the ‘Akoin Ecosystem’, a digital cash currency that Akon first hinted about in 2018.
The city is said to be built on a 2,000-acre land that Akon received as a gift from Senegal’s president, Macky Sall.
The musician, philanthropist and enterpreneur over the years has successfully powered different initiatives in Africa such as’Akon Lighting Africa’to provide solar power solutions to over 18 African countries
During the YouthConnekt Africa Summit, Kigali in 2017 Akon said “When I was growing as an entertainer,
I said to myself I don’t want to be remembered for just singing and dancing.
Ultimately, I had to figure out what I can do that will help create a legacy,”
We think Akon is surely on his way to building that legacy he talks about often.
