Singer, Tekno allegedly rejects black model for his video shoot
By Rita Chioma
A Video vixen and model has called out Nigerian singer, Tekno on Instagram.
The lady who goes by the username @quinbeee claims she walked out on the singer after he refused to allow her play the role of main model which she was scheduled for in his music video shoot.
She said his reason is because she’s dark-skinned, so she was substituted with another lady, a light-skinned one.
She however called on fellow dark-skinned ladies not to allow any form of rejection let them down because they are beautiful the way they are. She advised that if a light-skinned Tekno rejects them, they should look up to a dark-skinned Wizkid.
Read her post: “I had the worst experience today as a darkskin model, I woke up at 4am, got to Oregun on the mainland at 8am, and waited for the director @paul_gambitwhom i respect a lot. Anyways to cut the story short, after all my stress, Tekno arrived on set, it was time to shoot with him. Tekno refused to use me as the main model for his #yourlovethevideo shoot cause i’m dark skin. Later he settled for me doing the full shots so a light skin model can do the closeup shots with him. But i walked out on him and his set. Dark skin women are beautiful and precious, we don’t settle for less and we don’t get to be an option, we are the option. Black girls please love your skin and never feel bad about rejection, If a Tekno rejects you, Look up to a Wizkid, Wizkid inspires me everyday to love my skin with his videos and how much he appreciates black women…”
