Akon Is Building His Own City, So He's Definitely a Billionaire... Right?


Some of us dream of owning a house or apartment, and likewise, Akon dreamed of owning a city... until recently, that is. On Monday, Jan. 13, the "Smack That" singer took to Twitter to announce that "Akon City" was just finalized as a new city in Senegal, where he lived for part of his childhood, and continues to call his "hometown," according to the bio on his website.

There is definitely no denying that the Konvict Muzik founder should run the world after singlehandedly composing the entire soundtrack of my middle school career, but we can't help but wonder how he was able to afford an entire city. Seriously, forgive me for being presumptuous, but how much money does Akon have? Today, I'm doing a deep dive into the R&B god's life and finances to see what's really going on.
