The Hits and Jams Entertainment promoters insisted no such "fan-tossing" incident happened during Akon's show in Guyana, South America on August 30, saying the concert was a tremendous success.
The concert promoters for Akon are quick to issue a denial on reports that claimed the R'n'B artist was involved in other fan-tossing incident during his latest show in South America. They insisted reports that claimed the star threw two female fans during the show as being falsely misrepresented by the media.
It was previously reported that Akon was caught on tape throwing two female concertgoers at a packed show in Guyana, South America on August 30. He was videotaped, in between performances on the show, trying to "crowdsurf to a camera stand about 100 yards off stage" and when he got there he grabbed one of the female fans and pushed her into the crowd as she tried to hold his hand. He then grabbed the other lady who tried to embrace him from behind and tossed her into the crowd. The footage of the incident has since been all over the web.
Attempting to put the brake on the false circulating reports and set the record straight on that matter, Akon's concert promoter, the Hits and Jams Entertainment, issued a statement of denial that read, "We are shocked to hear that there is a video clip circulating that suggests Akon treated a fan badly during his August 30th performance in Guyana. There were no incident reports stemming from the event. Despite a late start, the concert was a tremendous success and we hope that Akon will come back soon."
As for the circulating footage of the incident, Hits and Jams Entertainment claimed it has been edited to create the false report about Akon. Hence, along with the denial, they also presented the original footage that actually shows Akon struggling to balance his stand after crowd surfing. He was seen in the video accidentally knocking one female fan down as he stumbled on his feet before then hugging the other one as he could finally balance his body, the video of which can be watched below.
