Meek Mill apologizes after receiving criticism for a music video that was shot in Ghana’s presidential residence

After receiving criticism for recording a music video at Ghana’s presidential residence, Meek Mill has issued an apology.

The US rapper, whose actual name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, published the music video for the promo, and the government of the nation both came under fire for revealing aerial views of President Nana Akufo-home, Addo’s Jubilee House. Many people felt this put the president’s safety in danger.

The hip-hop artist said that he never intended any “disrespect.”

“To the people of Ghana, no video I drop is ever meant to disrespect the people of Ghana,” he wrote in a tweet on Monday, January 23. The quickest way to communicate is through music, therefore I wanted to accomplish that while also showcasing art. I’m an American in my 30s and didn’t know much about the way of living here.


The rapper from the group Levels said he wanted to “create the connection between black people in America and Africa” with the video, and he promised to “push” in that direction.

My apologies to the people if there was any disrespect, Meek continued. We will continue to work to establish a link between black people in America and Africa. You should soon be able to see what I’m attempting to do, which goes beyond making a film. I’m sorry to the office as well!

The music singer secured bail for 20 ladies so they could spend Christmas with their family before issuing the apologies for the video.

Last month, the 35-year-old rap singer showed his support for the women, saying that nobody should spend Christmas behind bars “just because they can’t afford bail.”

In a statement, he said: “The holidays can be a very difficult time for families who are affected by the criminal justice system.

“If we can do something about it, nobody should have to spend the holidays in jail just because they can’t afford bail, and no child should be without their parents during this time. I’m appreciative of the chance to support these women so they can spend this precious time of year with their families and loved ones.


A post on Meek’s non-profit REFORM Alliance’s Instagram account outlined his gesture in further detail.

The women, who couldn’t pay bail, would now be able to celebrate the holidays with their family and close friends, according to the post. With the aim of releasing 15 additional women in the following week, five ladies were released today and will now be reunited with their family. Additionally, each of the women will get a gift card to use for holiday shopping or gift-giving.
