Akon Says Sorry

Published: Thursday 10th May 2007 by Sam

Akon has apologized for ‘dry-humping’ a 14 year old girl (preacher’s daughter) on stage in Trinidad last month. As some of you know, the public backlash has been pretty heavy and Verizon have pulled their sponsorship of Gwen Stefani’s tour due to Akon being the opening act. In a statement today, the Senegalese singer apologized and insisted he didn’t know the girl’s age:

“It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met.”

I don’t see why all the blame is being laid on Akon. The event was a strictly over 18’s show and she wasn’t supposed to be there. Plus, this chick DOES NOT look or dress like a 14 year old (click here to see pics). I’m not condoning his actions but one has to wonder about the sanity of her parents. Her idiotic preacher father defended his daughter saying ‘They are innocent to the wicked ways of the world and it is our responsibility as elders to keep them safe’. Isn’t it his responsibility to keep her out of the clubs?

What do you think?

    14, 18, 25 or 60 it doesn’t matter. Why should garbage that like be supported under any circumstance?

    The guy should have his ass sued by everyone in the audience who was offended by his mentally twisted display.

    The apology is a lil late. I’m saying we learned from the R.Kelly tape, or was rather reminded that 14 don’t mean sh!t. When I was 14 I had enough sense to know if I was humping Akon on purpose or not, and so does this young lady. Now if Akon sincerely felt bad he would’ve apologized before Gwen lost some money. Ultimately it’s this, if music’s favorite featuring artist becomes dangerous to your money profit, your not going to want to collab with him regardless of talent, or impressive personality.

    it was an 18 and up event. her behind should not have been there. it’s not akon’s fault that the club let her in. the club is at fault for not checking to see if she was old enough to get in . he shouldn’t have had to apologize for anything . no matter how he was dancing , he assumed he was dancing with a female that was an adult. he father ought to be putting his foot up her behind for doing the wrong thing and not trying to blame akon to get money .

    From the look of that pic, she was doing most of the work! She shouldn’t have been there. How’s a guy supposed to know? And that’s coming from a 48-year-old woman, mother of a daughter.

    Anyway, it was only dry humping, she’s have been doing that with a few boys by then I would have thought.

    Why even have a girl of any age on stage anyway! Those people came to see him perform. This guy is a total idiot. I cant stand his annoying voice!
