Akon will soon have yet another African city that bears his name.
The rapper-turned-business mogul is working to develop a futuristic city in the African country of Uganda. The announcement was made with NBS Uganda on Monday, per Complex.
The Ugandan government has given Akon one square mile to create Akon City. The exact details are slim but it plans to operate on AKoin stellar-based cryptocurrency and is slated to be completed by 2036.
“I know if I put it there, they’re going to find a way to afford it because it’s going to motivate them,” Akon said when asked about the price tag of the project. “But ultimately when you create an opportunity, people grow with that opportunity, people learn with that opportunity, people are motivated with that opportunity.”
