Akon Lays Foundation Stone For His Futuristic Black Panther-Style City

Senegalese music icon, Akon on Monday, August 31 during a media briefing announced alongside Senegal’s minister for tourism, Alioune Sarr and other government officials, that he had laid the first stone for his futuristic ‘Akon City’ in Mbodiène, a coastal village close to the nation’s capital, Dakar.

According to him, construction of the $6 billion cryptocurrency city will begin next year, describing the city as a real-life ‘Wakanda’ experience as portrayed in the famous blockbuster film Black Panther.

The first phase of the city is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Akon believes the project would provide much-needed jobs for Senegalese and also serve as a “home back home” for Black Americans and others facing racial injustices.
