US Rapper Meek Mill issues apology for releasing music video shot in Jubilee House after severe backlash [Video Inside]
American rapper Meek Mill has apologised to Ghanaians for a controversial music video he shot in the Jubilee House.
In a series of tweets on Monday evening, January 9, he accepted responsibility for the mishap which he said was not intentional.
“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 apologies to the the office also!,” the Philadelphia rapper tweeted.
“I don’t think they knew it was video footage when we asked to shoot its a small camera and one kid … in America we didn’t know this existed and was excited to show because they don’t show Ghana on our media much! So I’ll take responsibility for my mistake! Not intentional
“I’m just not here for no separation of anything black … we already separated enough and don’t understand each other’s cultures … let’s used this to help fix that and not more judgement towards each other!(sic),” he posted.
Meek Mill has received huge public backlash from a section of Ghanaians after posting a teaser of a video he shot at the Jubilee House, Ghana’s seat of government yesterday.
However, with the expression of outrage by some Ghanaians over Meek Mill’s controversial shoot at Jubilee House, Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as Shatta Wale thinks otherwise.
Probably outraged by the negative response from some Ghanaians about the video, the Kakai hitmaker described critics of the video as “villagers”.
In a tweet earlier Monday, January 9, he said, “You wan go America go take pictures for White House. You say “year of return” and your own black brother come shoot video as he return home you bore. You are a villager trust me!!!”
