American rapper, Meek Mill, who recently learnt he is part Ghanaian, has faced backlash from West Africans after filming his music video at Jubilee House – the official presidential office and home.
Hip-hop artist Meek Mill is popular among African Millennials and Gen Zers.
The love for the genre in Africa has grown considerably over the years as Gen Z welcomes international influences within their culture. Most upcoming rappers from the continent are young people.
Last month, the US-based rapper visited Ghana and performed at the Afro Nation concert in the nation’s capital city, Accra. He was later invited by the country’s head of state President Nana Akufo-Addo to visit Jubilee House. With his crew members, Mill later filmed a music video inside the president’s residence without permission and posted it on his official Instagram account.
