Meek Mill’s Apology Calls For Severe Sanctions And Investigations - Ablakwa


The admission by American rapper Meek Mill that he shot the music video at the Jubilee House without authorization, justifies calls for urgent investigations into the matter and sanctions meted out to whoever deserves to be punished, Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has said.

Following public backlash, Meek Mill apologized for the controversial music video and has since deleted it.

In a tweet, Meek Mill said, “my apologies to the people if any disrespected. 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 office [of the President] also”.

He added “don’t think they knew it was video footage when we asked to shoot its a small camera and one kid … in America we didn’t know this existed and was excited to show because they don’t show Ghana on our media much! So I’ll take responsibility for my mistake! Not intentional.”

He visited Ghana and performed at the AfroNation concert on Thursday, December 29, 2022.

Commenting on his apology, Mr Ablakwa who earlier called for investigations into this matter tweeted “It does appear Meek Mill’s multiple apologies to Ghanaians are quite sincere and should be accepted by all,” he tweeted.

He further said his only “serious reservation however is his claim that he engaged in all that deplorable desecration and major security breach on the blind side of officials.

“Is the President safe? Is Ghana safe? This has, without a scintilla of doubt, further justified earlier demands for urgent investigations and severe sanctions.”

Meanwhile, the Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Richard Ahiagbah has distanced the Presidency from Meek Mills’ music video.

He said the music video was not sanctioned by the Presidency.

“Meek Mill music’s video was not sanctioned by the Presidency. Its permission was not sought whatsoever for the use of the video. The musician has realized his indiscretion, apologized & taken down the video,” Mr Ahiagbah tweeted.
