On late Sunday, January 8, 2023; celebrated American rapper, Meek Mill posted an Instagram reel announcing that he was set to release a new track.
It turns out that portions of the said video were shot in and around the Jubilee House during his visit.
Meek Mill is seen in different places at the presidency, from the frontage, through the main corridors, in the main conference hall – at a point positioned behind the presidential lectern – and later in a sitting area rapping.
The American rapper was one of the guests at the Afro Nation concert in Ghana over the Christmas holidays.
Some of the major highlights of his time in Ghana were a rough riding power bike session, claims of his phone having been pickpocketed at an event, fighting off hoodlums before getting on stage to perform and meeting with the president at Jubilee House.
Ghanaians are however incensed over portions of the music video shot at the Jubilee House.
Most of them took to social media to express their angst.
The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, for instance, called for persons who allowed Meek Mill to shoot the video clip at the Jubilee House to be fired.
He said this is because the clip had some “explicit lyrics.”
“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?”
