Smells like a Fyre Festival manuever.

Because there is probably not enough electrical powerlines to power the entire city.

So investors. Beware.

There's a difference between being black and African. Akon is doing that for his African people, but the moment Jay tries to do something for black folks then they are going to hit him with a scandal and move him out of the way.

Jay-Z is the definition of a self-absorbed a**hole! This fake as "woke" act he's doing now. Is nothing more than a sham for optics. Beyonce is the one thats really with the charity sh*t.

Are you seriously asking this question? I can't tell if you are trolling. But if this is a serious question, the answer is NO. Jay-Z doesn't own the Brooklyn Nets, whatsoever.
Oh, okay, then Akon above him now.

Akon is leveraging his impoverish but rich in resource nation//and proxy continent. How can Jay do that in the wealthiest nation on the planet which been developed for over a century?

Let's see what Akon efforts produce for the actual people.
Can't Jay do more for his black people in Africa, though? A few years back, he was involved in a project where he brought water to remote villages in East Africa, if I can recall. Jay-Z should be doing more of that on the continent.

Akon been doing big sh*t in Africa.... Perspective is just different when you and everyone you grew up with literally had NOTHING. can't hate on Jay cuz he's a product of his society (people like Russell Simmons and Diddy fall in the same category). "The American Dream" tells nothing of helping other people so when they get it they keep it.

What in the world are you talking about? When people use the term African, more than likely, they are referring to Sub-Sahara aka the black people of Africa.
They are Sub-Saharan not black fam. There's no such thing as "black land" or black anything.. Unless you're talking about "color of law" in which the term "black" is utilized.

The North American natives are the only ones who don't know their nationality or where they come from, which is from North America, most so called "blacks" are not even from Africa at all.

In fact... there are colonies of so called African countries started by North American natives like Nigeria which didn't exist before they step foot there. History is funny, because it's usually a caucasian telling "blacks" about "black" history. I'm trying to figure out why "blacks" are still allowing them to write their history for them.

That's probably how they sold the project to the people but it's not that clear cut. Trickle down economics is not good enough for a country like Senegal. They need real equity and revenue sharing in every major project (especially a greenfield city).

He has already said he wants it to be a "free trade area" which basically means little to no taxation and a free for all for international hedge funds. This is neoliberalism 101.

I know all too well what it means to have NGOs and Hedge Funds salivating to set up shop in a poor, resource rich country with underdeveloped government structures to hold them accountable.
A country like Senegal won't build overnight but they have a lot to clean up and at the very least, such as attempting to clean up the image of Africa that America has portrayed in the media. The war-torn, jungle-hut living, hungry-children myths are being shattered, and it's helping to turn the heads of black people outside of the continent. The buildings, the infrastructure, and cities being built up is a start to get African-Americans to start visiting. Most of these projects are being done to help re-image Africa in the 21st century, which can result in visits from many people, those visits can encourage investments from other black people.

Africa is a developing world and someone like Akon is trying to get as many black people's hands into the continent as much as possible. You say trickle down economics is not good enough but at least they'll be building some form of an economy. You're condemning trickle down but in this case, trickle down is better than no economics at all. What's important is they are creating some form of economics. You have to look at this through the lens of one step at a time.

So you see no problem with taken money from the Chinese for this town when Africa already had 20 times more from China it can't pay off anytime soon? Im glad Akon trying revitalize Africa but you can't truly revitalize Africa when China is deep in it's pockets
Umm you know Africa is not a country right? Akon is building a city inside of one African country. Heís not responsible for the entire continent! Come on people use other peopleís money all the time to build sh*t, who cares. Hov has been using Live Nations money for years, does that make what he did at Roc Nation any less valid because heís using the white mans money instead of the Chinese?
