Video Vixen: Tekno dissed me because of my ‘dark skin’
Nigerian singer, Augustine Miles Kelechi, popularly known by his stage name Tekno, has been accused of favouring light skinned video vixens to black.
A Nigerian model, Debbie, who shared her bitter experience with the singer, said Tekno opted for a light skin vixen to shoot as the main model for his “Your Love” video.
In an Instagram post on Friday, the model also used the medium to encourage all dark skin vixens who face rejection because of their colour to never be discouraged, rather appreciate their complexion.
She wrote: “I had the worst experience today as a dark skin 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 because I’m dark skin.
“Later he settled for me doing the full shots so a light skin model can do the close-up shots with him. ButI 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.
