WATCH VIDEO: The Stunning Akon City in Senegal
Akon has shared a new video from the construction of his Akon City in Senegal on social media.
On January 13, pop singer Akon confirmed via Facebook that his 2,000-acre, Akon city in Senegal would soon break ground.
The project was first announced in 2018, and the smart city will rise near the capital of Dakar, on a plot gifted to Akon by President Macky Sall.
”I just signed the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future”
The new city is being pitched as sustainable, and when complete in 10 years, will be the first LEED-certified project in Africa. Because the project is being touted as a tourism city, SAPCO, the state-owned tourism agency, is co-developing the project with Akon.
Here was the video Akon shared on social media below…
