Akon Says if ‘Every Single African American’ Moves to Senegal and Invests in His Smart City, They Will Be Millionaires and the U.S. Will ‘Collapse Overnight’

R&B singer Akon is hyping his centrally planned community in Senegal, the country of his childhood, promising that every African American who invests with him will become a millionaire. In addition, he says if they collectively leave the U.S. for Africa, they could do real damage to the country that has oppressed them so much.
