Roommates, it’s cute to have your own lil’ mansion or your own lil’ private jet, but I don’t know too many celebrities out here with their own cities! It looks like Akon is the first of kind! He recently stopped by #NickCanon’s morning show to discuss what he’s been up to, including the massive city he’s bringing to Senegal.

In the interview, Akon not only confirms he’s been building his city since March, but he also says the city will be called ‘Akon City.’ He also adds the whole city will be ran on renewable energy sources. Along with that, the city will also have an airport for us non-city owners to fly in and out of!
