“Beyond his status as an artist, Akon understands and believes in Africa”, the tourism ministry said in a statement after the ceremony.
Akon city will be built on three square miles of land near Darkar, which is the country’s capital. This land has been gifted by the president of Senegal, Macky Sall to Akon. The singer is utilizing the gift for the betterment of the people of Africa.
It is also reported that Akon plans to build a complex on the seaside village of Mbodiene. However, it is unclear as of now whether it is part of the cryptocurrency project or is it a separate project overall.
Akon expressed that he hopes that his cryptocurrency project is the first of many cryptocurrency projects and successes. He hopes that his unique idea can bring joy and relief to the finically disturbed Africa.
However, this is not the end. Akon says that this is just the beginning and he hopes to build many similar cities in Africa, starting with Senegal. Akon further says that he is waiting to see how the plan works and if everything works out fine, there will be many more such cities in Africa and all you be interconnected making the life of entire Africa finically more stable than ever before.
It is a revolution by Akon in Africa and a good start for making cryptocurrency common among people.
Hopefully, the project “Akoin” is going to be a good start for Africa!
