Akon, US singer and businessman of Senegalese descent, has gotten a lot of people talking on Twitter after he concluded agreement to build ‘Akon City’, a futuristic city in Senegal.
The ‘Locked Up’ crooner had told his fans across the world that he had finalized agreement for the new city and would welcome whoever that wants to visit when the project is completed.
“Just finalized the agreement for AKON CITY in Senegal. Looking forward to hosting you there in the future,” he wrote on social media.
The announcement has since stirred up lots of conversation on social media platforms especially Twitter, where users have been registering their different takes on the development.
While a segment of users lauded him, others took a swipe at other celebrities for not embarking on similar projects in their respective countries.
Some Nigerians also aimed a dig at MI, Nigerian rapper, who recently tackled Akon for calling Wizkid his “Lil bro”.
“How much money does Akon have. He’s building a city not a private estate, a whole city,” a Twitter user said.
“On behalf of M.I, we Nigerians want to apologise to Uncle Akon for his misyarn some days ago. He was short of things to say,” another user said.
