Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Akon Discriminating Against Dark-Skinned Women?

Akon has seemingly been chilling, just doing his thing and living off his GaGa money. But, over in Africa, he’s still as major as ever. But, there are new reports that suggest that darker skinned African women have had a hard time getting opportunity in ‘Kon’s videos. Apparently there is a new video being shot over there with Akon and WizKid. Some of the Ghanaian models say that when they got there, the person that initially asked them to come out said that their lovely faces were no longer needed. Why? Seems like they only wanted “half cast” girls for the video aka women of mixed race. Now, Akon and WizKid are never directly implicated, but people assumed the “they” was them as the artists. The other side is this…and this is the sad part. Women in other regions such as Africa and The Caribbean are bleaching their skin to become lighter – or less Black…or perhaps more White. Now, people are looking to boycott Akon from what I heard. I don’t know if Akon has addressed this, because I heard he’s a good dude. But, this sucks.
