Wizkid And Akon Under Serious Attack for Racially Discriminating Black Ladies in Ghana!

Posted on


A popular US blog, bossip.com recently blasted singing sensation Wizkid and Akon for preferring to use light-skinned ladies for their upcoming video.

Apparently, a few ladies at the auditions got miffed and let out the story.

“Ahead of the upcoming concert that will see the likes of Akon, WizKid, Sarkodie and more in Ghana, controversy sparks! In a recent video shoot for an up and coming Akon and WizKid video, some Ghanaian models and girl were called upon to participate by the directors a few days ahead of the shoot.

 

Presumably prior to Akon and Wiz Kids arrival in Ghana.

 

A model reported on the day of the shoot some girls were turned away as the agent (or the man responsible for calling them) informed them that “they now want half cast girls”. A term used to describe girls with mixed heritage, usually ones with white blood in them.

 

“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.

 

Nigeria, where WizKid is from, and Senegal where Akon is from, are countries both flooded with girls bleaching their skin simply because of such discrimination and being made to feel ugly if dark. Not just in media and modelling, but general favours in life. Whilst there are good people in both countries trying to reverse the self esteem damage of such activities such as Adama Paris who banned skinned bleach models from the Senegalese national fashion week, Akon and Wiz Kid’s team are trying to further such acts internationally.

If this is the intentions Akon and the arrogant side kick WizKid wish to introduce to Ghana, then we will be more than glad to uninvite them. Unfortunately for these bigots, Ghana has never been a land where girls are discriminated for skin tone in any field. In such matters, it is obvious they will pass the blame onto an employee to maintain their reputation. But for any such behavior, both these artists should be boycotted until their position is clarified”

Ethiopian chick claims Wizkid has been texting her roommate

Posted on Updated on


 

And as expected, she was dissed by some Nigerians who saw her tweet. More tweets after the cut..

 

 

 

 

The chick pictured above claimed on Twitter a few hours ago that Wizkid has been texting and ‘bothering’ her roommate who is also an Ethiopian chick. That she wrote this doesn’t mean it’s true. Don’t forget, Wizkid is in a serious relationship, not that being in a relationship has ever stopped any man from toasting another chick…but…we don’t know if this is true.

 

And as expected, she was dissed by some Nigerians who saw her tweet. More tweets after the cut..

Omotola paid $650,000 (N100Million) to earn a slot on Times 100 influential list?

Posted on


Wait ish just got interesting………
According to blogger, Sheifunmi,our very own Omosexy bought her way into the 2013 Times most influential list with a whooping $650,000 which is about a 100 million naira. If you recall, Sheifunmi had big twitter rows with Davido and Wizkid when he published stories that Davido’s Dad was dating a young Unilag Student and claimed Wizkid is disrespectful to his mum…
Before you decide, read Sheifunmi’s allegation below:
”Before we get into it and stans or celebrities with mild relevance start coming at me with a bullet-less gun thinking they have a shot, let’s get one thing out of the way; This is a gossip type website. Any information contained on this site is reported as rumor and not actual facts unless receipts(proofs) are shown, official news/confirmation from a celeb’s rep/camp or i am talking about my own experiences. Do not take offense to any material on this site because everyone has the right to their side of the story. I am willing to hear all sides. Anyone in this industry, including myself will be subject to being put on blast. What you see is what you get! This is all for your own entertainment purposes… Now moving on.
An insider who happens to work closely with the most loved actress squealed details about Omotola making 2013 Time Magazine 100(Most Influential People in the World) list, stating that the actress paid a whooping sum of 650,000 dollars (which is over a 100 million naira if converted) to get a slot on that list.
Now i don’t know how true this is but i won’t find it amusing if she paid to make the list. Rich people (especially Nigerians) tend to pay for a lot of things (like Grammy,MTV,Bet award tickets which comes in different packages but the one they mostly go for is the full package with the hotel covered, access to Clive David’s pre-grammys party, red carpet, a seat next to a celebrity and after party, Forbes list, etc) to get recognised or live that ‘party with celebrities’ lifestyle.”
What do you think about this?

While other music stars are engaged in one form of war or the other, ‘Star Boy Wizkid’ (Ayo Balogun), is opening up his fan base and engaging in a rare philanthropic gesture, by doling out airtime, amounting to a whopping N100, 000, for his fans on Twitter.

The MTN ambassador decided to reward his loyal fans with the airtime as a show of appreciation for their support and standing by him.

And trust Nigerians, even those who are not fans of the ‘Jaiye Jaiye’ crooner, are rushing to follow him on Twitter with the hope of getting some airtime.

Some fans got as much as N23, 000 airtime and have been full of gratitude.

If you have not gotten yours, do not worry as Wizzy Baby has promised to make the gesture twice weekly for the rest of the month, only if you ‘Holla at Your Boy.’
