‘In US we didn’t know Jubilee House existed; I was excited to show to them’ – Meek Mill

American Rapper Meek Mill has said it was not intentional to denigrate Ghana’s seat of Government through the video he shot at the Jubilee House.

He said his motivation was to showcase the edifice to Americans who did not know it existed.

In a tweet, he said “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.”

He further apologized for the controversial music video.

“My apologies to the people if any disrespected. 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 [more] coming soon. My apologies to the office [of the President] also,” he said.

He has since has deleted the video.

This followed the backlash he and the Ghanaian government have received in response to the video.

For instance, North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said government officials who were responsible for this act should be sacked.

Mr Ablakwa described the situation as a despicable desecration of the seat of government.

Commenting on Facebook, Mr Ablakwa said “All those responsible for this despicable desecration of the Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately.

“How do those explicit lyrics from the president’s lectern project Ghana positively?

“Is Ghana’s seat of government no longer a high security installation?”

Civil Society activist, Dr Steve Manteaw also indicated on Facebook that “This is how low and cheap it gets. Another first for Ghana. I shiver to think about the security implications.”

The rapper has accordingly, removed the video from his social media pages.

The video clip popped up on social media on Sunday, January 8.
