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.

Akon is talking about the reason why he has multiple wives & even though he is a Muslim his reason doesn’t have a lot to do with religion.

TMZ caught up with the Senegalese American artiste yesterday at LAX & the singer who already has four wives said, “Women aren’t built to mate with more than one party … men are. At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to.”

So Akon pretty much believes the idea of a man sleeping with one woman for the rest of his life is beyond ridiculous, and if women could just accept that, there would be far less domestic disputes.
