A Nigerian model identified on Instagram as @Quinbee, has accused Nigerian singer, Tekno, for rejecting her on set for his music video ‘your love’, for being dark skinned.
The model took to the platform to express how dissapointed she was for being considered as second option with are dark skin.
According to the aggrieved Nigerian model who also shared an advice to prospective video vixens, if a Tekno rejects you, look up to a Wizkid.
Here’s what she wrote;
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_gambit whom 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…
Meanwhile, Tekno is yet to comment on the incident but sources at the location also confirmed the incident to TRN and disclosed further that the singer doesn’t like dark skinned girls.
