Akon Proceeds With Plans to Construct $6B ‘Real-Life Wakanda’ Despite COVID-19

“It’s official, ‘Akon City’ is still on its way! R&B sensation, Akon announced that construction for his futuristic pan-African city will begin next year, AP News reports. The $6 billion project will still proceed despite global tourism’s uncertain future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by the hit film, ‘Black Panther,’ Akon first set his sights on creating a utopian city back in 2018 and has described it as a ‘real-life Wakanda,‘ much like the technologically advanced fictional African place portrayed in the film. Akon hopes his city will serve as a ‘home back home’ for Black Americans and others facing racial injustices. His aim is also to provide much-needed jobs for Senegalese.
