Meek Mill shoots music video in the office of Ghana’s president
US rapper Meek Mill has apologized for surreptitiously filming a music video in Ghana’s presidential palace, also known as Jubilee House. The star caused an uproar with the video, which saw him lip-syncing in the palace’s corridors and halls – and even behind the presidential lectern.
Meek was accused of “desecrating” Jubilee House, while MPs raised questions about the potential security risks.
Mill, who was born Robert Rihmeek Williams in South Philadelphia, traveled to Ghana last month, after learning in an ancestry test that he was 18% Ghanaian. He performed at the Coronation concert in Accra, rode dirt bikes in the city streets, and was later invited to see Jubilee House.
The footage he filmed during his visit was uploaded to Instagram on Sunday, provoking outrage in the West African nation.
