Ghanaians React to Meek Mill Controversy

Ghanaians React to Meek Mill Controversy (News Central TV)

Following Meek Mill’s apology for filming a music video in Ghana’s presidential palace, Ghanaians have flooded social media spaces with mixed reactions. 

Although the American rapper tweeted “To the people of Ghana, no video I drop is ever meant to disrespect the people of Ghana,” some have called the video a desecration of the seat of the president.

In the said video, Meek Mill was spotted at different locations at the Jubilee House, from the frontage, through the main corridors, in the main conference hall, at a point positioned behind the presidential podium, and later in a sitting area rapping.

Ghanaian musician Kwaw Kese weighed in on the controversy tweeting “Ghana is not for Ghanaians, remember that”

A member of parliament for Ghana’s North Tongu district, tweeted “All those responsible for this despicable desecration of the Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately. How do those explicit lyrics from the president’s lectern project Ghana positively? Is Ghana’s seat of government no longer a high-security installation?

Seemingly on the side of Meek Mill following his apology, heavyweight Ghanaian star, Shatta wale tweeted “The apology you want meek mill has done. Now leave your phone and go work” “… Just remember Ghana is a village. Same ppl that showed you love now are complaining about a video you did to project Ghana for us. THEY STILL SLAVES IN THEIR MINDS”

A portion of Meek Mill’s apology read “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!”

Recall that the American rapper visited Ghana last month, after learning in an ancestry test that he was 18% Ghanaian. Following his performance in the Gold Coast, it is believed he had simply been excited to share his experiences in Ghana with the world.
