American rapper Meek Mill has made his first public post about Ghanaians’ effusion over his music video which was shot at the Jubilee House in Ghana.
The first step taken by the rapper after Ghanaians started lambasting him was to delete the video from his social media handles.
Upon realizing that the heat from the citizens was getting tenser, he decided to make a public apology to all Ghanaians and the office of the presidency.
“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 apologjes to the the office also!”

The rapper on Sunday evening posted a music video he shot at the Jubilee House, during his visit to the country during the Christmas festivities.
In the video, Meek Mill, in the company of some friends were seen in and around the Jubilee House jamming to his latest track.
The singer and his colleagues walked through some chambers of the Jubilee House, as well as the outer precincts of the facility.
Mill also made use of the official podium Akufo-Addo uses in his public addresses; while dishing out portions of his rap lines.
What he intended to excite his fans rather angered hundreds of Ghanaians who took to their social media platforms to condemn the use of the Jubilee House for the said filming.
According to the critics, since the Jubilee House is the embodiment of Ghana’s executive authority, it is inappropriate for the singer to have been allowed to access it in that manner.
The critics have therefore lambasted the Presidency for allowing the Jubilee House to ‘cheapened’.
