Meek Mill, an American rapper, has come under fire for filming a music video in Ghana after his visit.
This occurred after he shared the trailer for the video on his Instagram page.
In the footage, Meek Mill can be seen rapping at the Jubilee House, one of Ghana’s most guarded buildings. The area serves as both the president’s residence and office.
The teaser featured drone imagery of the Jubilee House and President Akufo-Addo’s podium which he uses to address the nation.

Since then, Meek Mill has faced harsh criticism from Ghanaians for disrespecting the nation.
The President of Ghana was also criticized for bending over backwards to let Meek Mill use such a famous location for his videography.
The frontman for the Dream Chasers traveled to Africa for the first time, stopping in Ghana where he gave a performance at the biggest afrobeat festival, AfroNation.

Meek Mill dems are not even rated in the US, but they come to Ghana and get treated like kings.
The audacity for him to shoot a video in the Jubilee House shows how Addo D has cheapened the presidency.
Our leaders are not just CLOWNS; they’re a LIABILITY to this country. pic.twitter.com/tL8dQzaxuq
