Meek Molle has backtracked on his claim that his phone was stolen during his visit to Ghana for this year’s Afro Nation music festival.
Thursday (December 29) Meek took to Instagram with a message that someone had “picked” his phone and he wanted it back. The Dream Chasers boss shared several videos on his IG stories of him out and about with Ghanaians while on his way to the festival.
Meek had felt all the love from the locals and explained in a story that he planned to get a house in Ghana. It got sour on the next slide though.
“They chose to pocket me for my phoneeeeee SMH ….Bring that Jawn back if you got it!!” he wrote.

It wasn’t long before the phone was found and returned to the Philly rapper. Friday (December 30) The Ghanaian police hand delivered Meek his phone and revealed it they had arrested a suspect named Nuhu Sule.
“I want to say thank you for bringing my phone back into my life, man,” Meek can be heard saying in a video he posted to his Instagram story showing his phone being returned. “Don’t let him hack me or anything, okay Commander?”

However, Meek has now admitted that his phone may not have been stolen, and that instead it may have fallen out of his pocket while he was out riding his dirt bike.
“I could have dropped that phone on a motorcycle, I don’t actually know that someone went in my pocket!” he tweeted Friday night.
Perhaps a little guilty, he let it be known that he didn’t want anyone to be charged with the theft, especially given that he wasn’t really sure if the phone was ripped from his pocket.
“I got it back, that’s all I needed, I don’t need someone locked up to a phone,” he wrote. “I don’t even know what happened to it.”

Regardless of his initial setback due to his lost phone, Meek was able to take to the stage at Afro Nation on Thursday night, which also featured performances from Davido, Skepta, Rema, Black Sherif, Tiwa Savage and others across the two days. But things got crazy again after the show when the former MMG rapper tried to quit.
“They hit me hard for uppppppp but love overcame it… almost went from dreams to nightmares real quick lol,” Meek wrote in an Instagram post shows him getting into a physical altercation with a fan.
Before the tour, Meek Mill actually found out that he is 18 percent Ghanaian when he received the results of a DNA test he obtained through Ancestry.com. After posting the results on her Instagram story, the Philadelphia native circled the 18 percent labeled “Ivory Coast and Ghana” and wrote, “My second home!!!”
Last week, Meek Mill got into the holiday spirit to post bail for 20 Philadelphia women so they could spend the holidays with their families.
The women were also given a gift card to help with last minute vacations or grocery shopping. Meek Mill explained that his own experiences as an incarcerated parent inspired him to cover the women’s bail.
“It was devastating for me to be away from my son for the holidays when I was incarcerated,” Meek Mill explained in the statement. “So I understand what these women and their families are going through. No one should have to spend the holidays in jail just because they can’t afford bail. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help these women be with their families and loved ones at this special time of year.”
