Hip-hop star Meek Mill has announced he is returning to Ghana and will be coming with friends after his first trip last December.
Interestingly, Meek Mill became the target of social media attacks on Sunday, January 8, 2023, after he posted a video of his visit to the Jubilee House with his music playing in the background.
The video, which went viral almost immediately, was viewed by some in the presidency as disrespectful and a breach of protocol.
MP for the Volta Region constituency in northern Tongo, Samuel Okudzito-Ablakwa, called it a sacrilege of the country’s highest office and stated that the background music contained some profanity.
In less than 48 hours, Meek Mill removed the video and posted it on Twitter to apologize to the people of Ghana.
However, he has announced that he will return to Ghana.
He explained in a tweet he posted that he would invite others to make the journey with him.
“Next time I go to Africa I’m taking my hood! They gotta see Ghana!!!” he tweeted on January 20, 2023.
His visit to Ghana in December 2022 was his first stay in Africa.
According to the famous rapper, he is part Ghanaian, part Ivory Coast and part Nigerian.
In December 2020, Meek Mill made headlines in the hip hop world when he announced his intention to settle in Ghana. He wanted to buy a house and live with his family in Ghana.
Meek Mill was one of the headliners at the Afro Nation Festival held in Accra’s Black Star Square on December 28-29, 2022.
After the show, he said he would love to sign a Ghanaian artist for his Dream Chasers (DC) label, adding that he had never felt love in his life.
During his conversation with President Akufo-Addo, Meek Mill spoke about his life and the challenges he faced growing up as a young black man in America.
He also pledged to use his talent and influence to inspire young people to stay positive and have the confidence to achieve their goals in life.
