African entertainer and entrepreneur Akon officially has his own city in his birth place of Senegal.
The news concerning the finalization of the agreement was announced on Monday by Akon himself over a tweet.
“Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future” he said.
Akon originally announced plans for the futuristic “Crypto city” in 2018. He stated that the city would be built on a 2,000-acre land gifted to him by the President of Senegal, Macky Sall.
The new city would also trade exclusively in his own digital cash currency called AKoin, he said.
The official website for the city said at the time it would be a five-minute drive from the West African state’s new international airport.
