Verizon Wireless has given a dial tone to singer Akon in the wake of his innappropriate onstage behaviour with a minor. The singer, originally from Senegal, reportedly simulated sexual positions with a 15-year-old girl during a performance in Trinidad.
As reported on TMZ.com:
“The rapper invited 15-year-old Danah Alleyne onto the stage, and the girl obliged, thinking that she was entering a dance contest to win a “trip to Africa,” as Akon promised. But when Alleyne “won” the contest, the “trip to Africa” turned out to be an on-stage encounter with Akon during which her “head was hitting the floor, said Alleyne to the Trinidad Express (via FOX News).”
Verizon promptly axed sponsorship of Akon stating “reasons.”
