Kanye West Says He’s Helping Build a ‘New City of the Future’ in Haiti

Kanye West is taking the seed Akon planted and hoping it will grow in Haiti

On Monday, West revealed that he’s planning on helping to build a smart city—similar to the one Akon is building in Senegal—in Haiti.

“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,” Kanye tweeted.

‘Ye’s involvement with Haiti and the Haitian government is unclear. West mentioned the idea during his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience following a visit to the country in September.
