Meek Mill’s new music video is being criticized by Ghanaians

Meek Molle had to do damage control as Ghanaians around the world dragged him to his upcoming music video which was shot at the country’s presidential palace.

Over the weekend, the Dream Chasers boss shared a teaser of the music video he filmed while out and about on vacation in Accra, Ghana. Various scenes show Meek in the country, but there were a few clips that didn’t go down well with Ghanaians.

Meek’s teaser showed the inside of Ghana’s highest security zone, Jubilee House, which doubles as the presidential palace. Other scenes show the Philly rapper using the same podium that President Nana Akufo-Addo used to address the nation.

Ghanaians wasted no time jumping on social media to vent their frustrations over what they claimed was a desecration of the presidency. Many claimed the video shoot was a security breach, while also trying to understand how Meek got security clearance to film the video at such a respected location.

β€œMeek Mill really shot a music video at Jubilee House? This is the lowest point we can get as a country,” one person wrote on Twitter. “What happened to ‘Jubilee House is a safe zone’. Even the American Embassy in Ghana you can’t take pictures and Ghana allows Jubilee House to become a studio. We are DONE.”

Another tweeted: All those responsible for this despicable desecration of Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately. How do these explicit texts from the president’s pulpit Ghana work positively? Is Ghana’s seat of government no longer a high security installation?”

Another person asked if Meek can’t do the same thing in his own country how is he allowed to do it in a foreign country tweeting, “Nah!! This is getting serious why are we allowing it? Can Meek Mill record a music video in the white house? Hey Gh lol. What a country! We’ve given these guys too much freedom they don’t even have in their country.”

Meek Mill got wind of all the commotion and removed the teaser from his social media pages. However, the position had already done the damage. He issued an apology on Monday (January 9) and promised to reveal the major project he was working on while in Ghana very soon.

“I apologize to the people for any disrespect! We will still push to make the connection between black people in America and Africa… what I am trying to do is more than a video and you should watch it soon! I also apologize to the office!

This wasn’t the only problem Meek Mill had while she was out in Ghana. When he first got there, he claimed someone pickpocketed 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 Afro Nation Music Festival.

The phone was found and returned to the Philly rapper by Ghanaian police who hand-delivered the item to Meek his phone and revealed that 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. “You didn’t let him hack me or anything, did you all, Commander?”

Soft later admitted that his phone might not have been stolen and instead could 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. “I got it back, that’s all I needed. I don’t need someone locked up to a phone. I don’t even know what happened to it.”
