Looks like Akon may be the solution to NEPA/PHCN & our incessant power supply issues in Nigeria!

The Senegalese/American music star recently announced that he would be launching a Solar Academy in Bamako, Mali.

The Academy will train local African engineers and entrepreneurs in order to teach them how to produce solar power. The initiative, called “Akon Lighting Africa,” aims to bring solar power to over 600 million Africans.

WTF! Akon & WizKid Allegedly Reject Dark Skinned Models In Favour Of Mixed Race Girls At Video Shoot In Ghana?!



Damn dark skinned black girls get no LOVE!

It is being alleged by a Ghanaian website that Akon & Wizkid rejected dark skinned black girls in preference for mixed race girls fro a video shoot in Ghana.

According to Fashion Ghana

At a recent video shoot in Ghana for an Akon and WizKid video, some Ghanaian models were called upon to participate by the directors a few days ahead of the shoot. The call was made presumably prior to Akon and Wizkid’s arrival in Ghana. A model reported that on the day of the shoot some girls were turned away as the agent informed them that “they now want half caste girls”.

“THEY”, most likely referring to WizKid, Akon and/or his music video producer, turning away a fleet of arrivals originally requested to attend by the model scout. In fact, the agent requested if the girls could help him seek light skinned girls because ‘THEY’ were so adamant on this request even on late notice.
