On his Twitter handle, the “Lonely” singer announced it through a tweet: @akon of January 13, 2020.

“Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future,” he tweeted.

The city was built on a 2,000-acre land given to it by the Senegalese President, Macky Sall according to Akon.

Finally, the new town would also exclusively trade in its own digital currency known as AKoin.
