Legendary Senegalese-American singer, Akon, has spoken on his plan to build a futuristic place called Akon City in Senegal. While speaking at a conference on Monday, August 31, 2020, the Smack That crooner said that the idea behind the city was to welcome Africans in diaspora to a ‘home back home’.

Akon said that while growing up in America where his family moved to when he was seven, he ran into a lot of African-Americans who did not know a lot about their culture and that it prompted him to want to build a city that would motivate people about their homes.
The city which has a futuristic design done by architect Hussein Bakri is said to make provisions for hospitals, hotels, a university, movie studios and more.
