Akon Gets Approval To Build his Own City Called ‘Akon City’ In Senegal

Published

on

In an interview this past November with Nick Cannon, Akon talked about his plans to create the tourism village in Senegal. Speaking on its progress he shared that “It’s a 10-year building block so we’re doing it in stages,” he said. “We started construction in March and stage two is going to be 2025.”

Akon has always been an activist in his home continent aiming to improve the lives of the millions of citizens that reside there. In 2014, Akon and his partners founded “Akon Lighting Africa,” which aims to provide millions of Africans with electricity through solar energy. Two years after the organization was established, the singer secured a billion dollar credit line to help fund the solar project.
It looks like there have been some major developments for Akon with establishing his own city in Senegal, West Africa.

The “Don’t Matter” singer was born and raised in Senegal until he was 7-years-old before he moved to the United States with his family. It was recently reported that he was working on carving out a new tourism-driven city that is also eco-friendly. Now he is announcing that he is in the final stages of making it happen.

Akon has officially signed an agreement with tourism company SAPCO, a state-owned organization in Senegal. Taking to his Instagram to share the news, the singer wrote, “Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal,” he wrote. “Looking forward to hosting you there in the future.”

SAPCO Secretary General Aliune Ndiaye said that Akon intends to set up a property in Mbodiene’s seaside village which is about 75 miles from the Senegal’s capital city of Dekar. According to Jakarta Post, a spokesperson for the tourism ministry in Senegal, Akon wants to build a “sustainable tourism village that would campaign for the environment.” They also added that the monument will be extra special because of who is behind it. “Beyond his status as an artist, it is Akon, the investor who believes in AfricaWe’re so pleased to hear that the last dotted line was signed and “Akon City” is finally coming to fruition.,” the tourism ministry said.

Ghanaian sensational female artist Klarah Kay in an interview monitored by kobbygossips.com with the host of Raggae 360, Ras Ama on EBN Tv shared her view on the recent happenings in the music industry.

Klarah Kay who has been in the music industry for the past 11 years when asked her take on the recent beef among her fellow female artists mentioned that she feels it’s an effort to pave way for the female artists since the media isn’t paying much attention to them.

She applauded Eno for her hardwork, persistence in the music industry and adviced Freda Rhymes never not to disperect her seniors in the industry. Klarah Kay mentioned she is versatile, although she can rap but she feels very good when she does Raggae and Dancehall.

“The female artists are really putting alot of effort into their craft but are not getting the support, whenever I raise this allegation I get attacks but it’s the truth. I remember when I visited Nigeria, it was crazy how people who noticed me as a musician came around to help me share my CDs without taking a penny from me. Back here in Ghana it’s different, if you don’t have a relationship with them especially DJs you’ll have to pay for the service.”

The Raggae/Dancehall artist Klarah Kay mentioned that she doesn’t smoke marijuana as people think because of her energy when she’s seen performing but rather takes it as tea. She adviced her fellow artists who have not yet reached their target to never give up and strive forward, put in lot of hardwork and never stop praying.
