Akon has been on a mission in the last few years to build a futuristic city in Senegal. Now Kanye West is following in his footsteps in creating a city for Haiti with futuristic capabilities. He made the huge announcement on Twitter.
The hip hop billionaire made a trip to the island and was greeted by the president. Kanye West confirmed that he was moving forward with his plan. He declared, “Just to be CLEAR: WE ARE IN ENGAGED WITH HAITI’s GOVERNMENT to make a transformational INVESTMENT to bring JOBS, DEVELOPMENT, HELP SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS and FISHERMEN and Build a new « CITY OF THE FUTURE » in a very beautiful country”.

Check out more reactions to the announcement below!
Why build a “city of the future” in a place prone to natural disasters tho. That’s like white people building New Orleans after the Native Americans told them not to knowing that it’s below sea level, literally sinking. I mean Miami will be underwater in 80 years. Move inward.

Just to be clear: Haïti's government doesn't have the authority to give you land, and certainly not l'île à la Tortue – contrary to what you said on the radio.
