Sri Lanka rejects visa for Akon

Bookmark Sri Lanka rejects visa for Akon

The government has decided to reject a visa for popular international R&B singer Akon to perform in Sri Lanka over allegations leveled against him regarding a controversial video which showed scantily clad women dancing around a Buddha statue.

Akon was to perform in Sri Lanka next month and a major tourism drive was also launched to bring down fans from Asia for the concert.

Earlier in the day the Tourism Minister had also met with other officials involved with the concert to discus concerns raised over one of his videos.

However, Lasantha Samarasinghe Director of Platinum Entertainment, the organizers of the Akon concert said that he has not been officially informed of a visa being rejected for the singer.

Akon is featured in the video ‘Sexy Chick’ by David Guetta and the making of the video shows bikini clad women dancing around a Buddha statue near a pool. Buddhist monks had called on the government to cancel the concert on the basis Akon appeared in the video and the video degraded Buddhism.
