After Akon ‘s recent video shoot in Ghana with Nigeria’s Wizkid and Banky W, it emerged that the Senegalese born American based rapper joined hands with some modelling agencies to discriminate against dark skinned models who they had initially requested…

After the video shoot, some dark skinned models alleged that Akon and Wizkid requested through the various modelling agency that they do not want them (dark skinned models) anymore—-but wanted light skinned ones, preferably mixed race models.

A photog of celebrity blog-TMZ caught up with Akon who was rolling up to Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood to find out if the above really did happen and he said NO…

But then, what else do we expect him to say? We guess when the video for the song- Roll It comes out, we can make some deductions as to which models were used…
