A Nigerian model named Quinbee has taken Instagram to tell the world that Nigerian musician Tekno allegedly rejected her for a video shoot because of her skin tone.
According to the model, Tekno refused to use her as the main model for his #yourlovethevideo shoot because of her skin colour. He only settled for her doing the full shots so a light skinned model can do the closeup shots.

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…
