Akon refused visa in Sri Lanka ? Lupe writing a book?+new music
Senegalese singer Akon was denied a visa to Sri Lanka where he was supposed to perform.According to BBC News ,"The ban comes after protests over one of the star's music videos featuring scantily-clad women dancing in front of a statue of Buddha".
Akon did apologize saying he has no idea he had offended some religious groups and his people had "postponed" the show then later cancelled it.Now it looks like Maldives will be welcoming him with open arms as President Mohamed Nasheed's press secretary Mohamed Zuhair claims the hitmaker has accepted the offer to play in the Maldives.
Zuhair says, "We are very happy he is planning to come and perform." The concert is scheduled to take place a day earlier than planned, on April 23.
