With the explosion of the world wide web, there are eyes (and cameras) everywhere. R&B singer Akon found that out the hard way recently.
The game’s newest hook king was caught on camera during a concert simulating a sex act with a female attendee. Typically, such acts could be viewed as a regular occurrence at R&B and Hip Hop concerts.
However, the female this time around happened to be 14-years-old.
The video, shot in Port of Spain, Trinidad last Thursday hit the internet the next day and garnered national headlines. The girl’s father, is now speaking out on the incident, saying his daughter Deena, was taken advantage of at the show which took place at Zen Nightclub.
Pastor Dave Alleyne of Flaming Word Ministry of Chaguanas, Deena’s father, says his daughter ended up in a situation which she had little control over.
At the show, Akon announced a dance competition which was to include various prizes and “a free trip to Africa.” Deena won round one of the competition.
After the contest was over, Akon revealed that he was “Africa.”
"She likes dancing and won a competition," Alleyne said of his daughter.
Members of Alleyne’s church have called for the Pastor to denounce Akon. However, instead of solely blaming Akon, Alleyne blames the “pop culture climate that supports teen fascination with pop stars,” according to an EUR Web report.
Here’s the video of the incident:
