Reports coming in have indicated that the Senegalese-American RnB singer, Damala Badara Akon has returned quietly to Uganda this time upon an invitation of Uganda’s business tycoon, Hamis Kiggundu aka Ham.

Akon was last in Uganda in the year 2021 to attend President Museveni’s inauguration ceremony upon his reelection for a 6th term as President.

The investor who promised to set up a futuristic city in Uganda dubbed Akon City arrived into the country on Friday evening and was received at the Airport by Ham’s team.

It is however, not yet clear why the investor’s visitation was not organised by government as it has been the case in the past trips.

Credible sources have revealed that Akon could be planning to abandon the government project of setting up the Akon city to engaging in private dealings with the private individuals like Ham with whom they can partner to run several investments.

“Despite government allocating Akon land equivalent 10 1 square mile, no interest has been shown in visiting the land and not his architectural designer has bothered to tour the land,” an anonymous source revealed.

It is said that from Entebbe International Airport, Akon was driven direct to Ham’s multibillion mansion along Lake Victoria shores where he will be putting up as well as celebrating the forthcoming Eid festivals.

Akon last met with Ham three months ago in Dubai during the recently concluded Dubai Expo.

The cost of the construction or date of commencement of the construction of Akon city have not been disclosed. However, the project is expected to be completed by 2036.
