Talk of dreams! – Akon unveils plan for his Ksh. 644 Billion city in Senegal

African American iconic RnB singer, Akon, has for a while now been talking about his biggest dream, building his own city in Senegal.

Well, speaking recently to a press conference on Monday 1st September, said that the idea behind the city is to welcome Africans in diaspora ‘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.

“So I wanted to build a city or a project like this that will give them the motivation to know that there is a home back home”.

he said.

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.
