Are Akon and Wizkid racist?

ImageAccra – American musician Akon and Nigerian pop-star Wizkid have been accused of refusing to use dark skinned girls for their music video shoot in Ghana.

A fashion magazine based in Ghana, Fashion Ghana.com, claims the duo specifically requested for ladies of mixed heritage who were fair skinned.

According to the magazine, a model said she was rejected by the music video director because Akon and WizKid wanted “half-caste girls”.

Fashion Ghana.com also said that the dark skinned ladies were asked to bring their light skinned friends instead.
