World-famous hip-hop singer Akon, renowned for songs like ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Lonely’ will come to Malta in November, but don’t expect him to belt out some of his classic tunes.
Akon will speak at the Malta AI and Blockchain Summit about his grand plan to develop a futuristic ‘crypto city’ in Senegal, which he calls “a real-life Wakanda”.
Senegal’s President Macky Call last year gifted Akon with 2,000 acres of land to build a city, which will be called ‘Akon Crypto City’
“The whole idea with the city is to create a renewable city,” Akin has said. “Crypto is the money spent in the city; all digital. All renewable energy; no gas, no nothing. And clearly, we’ll create platforms of all of today’s newest technologies embedded within the city itself.”
Eman Pulis, founder and CEO of Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit, said, “With a vision so clearly in line with the best hopes for the blockchain world, Akon is sure to be a huge draw for the conference audience at November’s Malta AIBC. We’re excited to work with him in using blockchain to make the world a better place for everyone.”
