Akon Gets A City Named After Him.... "Plans to turn it into A Tax-Fee Wakanda!"

Can we say, “Dreaming of Wakanda?”

After 7-years of back and forth with the country’s government, rapper Akon has finally signed off on his very own self-named “Akon City” in Senegal.

TMZ caught up with Akon at LAX Wednesday when he gave an update on “Akon City”.

Akon confirms what he announced last month — that he’s finalized an agreement for the city and secured the land … but adds he’s now working on a partnership with the government to implement tax-free policies and incentives he wants to attract business.

He says he’s dead serious about his city resembling Wakanda from “Black Panther” — with all the latest and most progressive technology — and believes it’s in the perfect geographical location to make it happen.

Akon also gave more facts about West Africa to paint a picture of what his new city is going to look like … and he says he’ll soon release a YouTube video to share his vision.

Let us know what you think about Akon’s new city and of his plans to turn it into an actual replica of Wakanda in the comments below…
