Meek Mill Apologizes For Shooting Music Video Inside Ghana’s Presidential Villa
Meek Mill, an American rapper, faced harsh criticism on social media after parts of his newly released video included images of Ghana’s presidential house.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Meek Mill spent a portion of December performing at the Afronation festival in Ghana.
The American rapper used the opportunity to reconnect with his African heritage, something he had previously expressed a desire to do on Twitter.
Meek Mill visited the presidential residence when he was in Ghana and had a meeting with Nana Akufo-Addo. Meek Mill recorded several scenes inside the White House when he was there, and these scenes were included in his promotional video.
Ghanaians expressed their unhappiness with the video and his antics on Twitter, calling them rude.
Meek Mill has apologized to the Ghanaian people on his Twitter page for whatever resentment his behavior may have generated. He claimed that his desire to respect the culture motivated his behavior.
“My apologies to the people if any disrespect! We still gonna push to make the connection between black people in America and Africa … what I’m trying to do is more than a video and you should see coming soon! My apologies to the office also!” The tweets read.
Announcing his intention to keep using music to bring African Americans and Africans together, Meek Mill also erased the video.
