Meek Mill has apologized to the people of Ghana after facing criticism for filming a music video in the country’s presidential palace.

Over the weekend, the rapper, who is of Ghanaian heritage, shared a teaser of a new music video, in which he could be seen rapping in the Jubilee House and on the same podium President Nana Akufo-Addo uses to address the nation.

On Monday morning, Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa, Ghana’s former deputy education minister, hit out at Meek and  team.

“All those responsible for this despicable desecration of the Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately,” he tweeted.

“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?”

Shortly after Ablakwa’s comments, Mill deleted the video and issued an apology

“To the people of Ghana no video I drop is ever meant to disrespect the people of Ghana,” he said. “The fastest way to make connection is thru music and I wanted to do that with displaying art … im in my 30’s from America and didn’t know much about the lifestyle here.”

He added;

 “My apologies to the people if any disrespect! We still gonna push to make the connection between black people in America and Africa … what I’m trying to do is more than a video and you should see coming soon! My apologies to the the office also!”
