Senegalese-American star Akon is making the headlines away from the world of music. The sensation is building a futuristic city which will completely function on cryptocurrency.

Akon has given an update on the city and said that the – $6 Billion Akon City – will completely run on the akoin cryptocurrency in Senegal. In another revelation, Akon said that his city will resemble that of Wakanda from the Marvel hit movie Black Panther in more ways than just its futuristic appearance.

“This movie literally made an idea of what Africa could really be,” Akon was quoted as saying by TMZ. “It’s just ironic that I was already working on this before the movie came out, but it’s something that helped me a lot when I was trying to explain to explain to people what I was trying to do.”

Akon said the centre point of his city will be a 5,000-bed hospital which will cost about $1 billion to build.

The first phase of construction will also include homes, hotels, schools, police and fire stations, an airstrip, a mall, a waste facility, a solar power plant, and all the other hallmarks of modern-day cities, according to the report.

The American star wants the city to focus on solar energy.
