Akon,an african american musician have seen the need to help africa,after his deal to set up akon city , wich will be making use of his digital coin Akion in senegal
Akon says his desire for luxury reduced when he noticed the poor development in Africa.
He said raising one billion dollars for the project was not easy,according to him he sold out his jewelry worth $50.000,in other to put light and pipeline waters in some african countries
In a statement, He said; “Showing off is no longer my delirium, I don’t wear jewelry anymore. I’ve seen so many people in need until I feel guilty visiting the villages. Showing up with $50,000 earrings is useless. It’s just tape to the eye that only serves to look good in front of others. That’s why I decided to use my money to help others.”
