Meek Mill performed as the main act at the Afronation concert in Ghana in December. It was an opportunity for the American rapper to reconnect with his African heritage, something he had expressed a desire to do on Twitter. While in Ghana, Meek Mill stopped by the presidential residence and met with Nana Akufo-Addo. Meek Mill visited the White House and recorded several moments there that were included in his promotional film.
Ghanaians who saw the video expressed their displeasure by tweeting about it and labeled his behavior as disrespectful. Meek Mill has apologized to the Ghanaian people on his Twitter page for whatever resentment his behavior may have generated. He claimed that his desire to respect the culture motivated his behavior. The rapper, in his tweet, said that international connections are made fastest through music, and he was only trying to establish such a connection with his Ghanaian people through his art.
You could tell that it was an honest mistake from the tone of his words and profuse apology; however, he also stated that his agenda is more than just a video and that everyone should stick around to discover that. Have a look at the rapper’s tweets below.
