akon is turning his dreams into reality – building a futuristic city in Senegal, which he says will resemble Wakanda from “Panther Black” … in more ways than his futuristic look.
The singer, who hails from Senegal, joined us on TMZ Live on Tuesday for an update on “Akon City”, the $ 6 BILLION cryptocurrency-driven city that was recently destroyed in its West African country .
Akon told us why the city center will be a 5,000-bed state of the art hospital, which he says will cost about $ 1 BILLION just to build. The hospital is part of the first phase of construction, which Akon says will also include residences, hotels, schools, police and fire stations, an air strike, a shopping mall and all other modern-day city signs. .
Looking at the appearances for Akon City, it’s easy to see why some people think building Akon is a Wakanda in real life … and he tells us how “Black Panther” actually helped him sell the project to investors and partners.
Akon expects phase 1 to be completed by 2023, and when the city is completed by 2029 it will be fully operational, you guessed it – akoin cryptocurrency.
All that is needed now is a leap … ”the cause of“ Wakanda forever ”has been taken up a lot.
