AKON AND WIZKID REJECTS DARK SKINNED GIRLS FOR VIDEO SHOOT. REQUESTS FOR HALF-CASTE

Standard

It seems with Akon and Wizkid, it’s the lighter the better.

The music superstars are under fire for allegations that the pair refused dark skinned girls from appearing in a music video in Ghana. They requested for half-cast ladies.

Fashion Ghana is reporting that some Ghanaian models were asked to participate by directors in an upcoming video shoot a few days ahead of the D-Day.

A  model allegedly claimed that on the day of the shoot some girls were asked to leave as the agent for the video shoot, stated that “they (Akon & Wizkid) now want half-caste girls”.

The publication also reports that the dark skinned ladies turned away, were asked to seek light skinned girls because Wizkid and Akon were adamant on the request on late notice.

We often hear in Hollywood, how dark skinned African-American actresses like Viola Davis and Gabrielle Union loose roles to light skinned actresses like Halle Berry and Nicole Ari Parker.

Do you find their requests offensive? Are they wrong for choosing the type of women they want for their music videos?

Let’s Talk about it!
