Akon Is Building Africa’s Largest Hospital. The actual location of the hospital is in Senegal. He is also building a city.
Akon’s City & Hospital Will Be Completed By 2026
Akon Is Building Africa’s Largest Hospital. His futuristic city will be completed by 2026. In spite, of Covid-19 effects, Akon is optimistic. He admitted there were a few setbacks.
Some of the partners had to lock down. In other words, some had to quarantine. But his momentum to finish this project is there. Now, he is able to push forward with construction, as reported by AfroTech.
Furthermore, construction will start in early 2023. Therefore, the first part of the project will hopefully be done by the Olympics. That is the junior Olympics which will be held in Senegal in 2026.
This project has a hefty price of close to $ billion. It was the movie “Black Panther” which inspired Akon to build. In fact, Akon admits the city and hospital will be a real-life Wakanda.
Although Akon is a United States citizen, his roots are in Senegal. That is where his parents were born. Therefore, he felt the need to give back and invest in Africa.
As a matter of fact, the city will have a hotel, corporate towers, boating docks, food and beverage stores, and a 10,ooo-bed hospital. Also, the first phase will include a lot of amenities for tourists.
It sounds as though Akon’s Senegal City will be spectacular. Especially, the hospital which will be the largest on the African continent.
