Akon & Wizkid have come under fire for reportedly rejecting models for their video shoot because of their skin color.
According to FashionGhana.com, a model claimed she had been booked earlier for the video shoot, but was told that on getting there on the day of the shoot, that “they” only wanted half-caste girls.
According to the modelling agent, they were adamant and would not budge with their request for light-skinned models.
They have come under fire from fans for the decision, with many not expecting such racist behavior from African artistes.
