Rapper Akon has unveiled plans to build his own futuristic city in Senegal, trading in a crypto-currency named ‘AKoin’ after himself. The proposal for Akon Crypto City says it will be a ‘real-life Wakanda’ – referring to a technologically advanced country in Marvel’s Black Panther film.
AKoin’s website says the city, near the capital Dakar, will include universities, schools, a sports stadium and an international airport on 2,000 acres of land. The Smack That singer, 45, told the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity that the currency could be the ‘saviour of Africa in many ways’
