“I wanna get citizenship in Ghana” – Meek Mill

American rapper Robert Rihmeek Williams, popularly known as Meek Mill, says he is considering acquiring Ghanaian citizenship.

The rapper faced criticism in the previous year for filming a music video inside Ghana’s presidential palace.

Through a post on X (formerly Twitter), Meek Mill voiced discontentment with his current living situation in the United States.

The rapper wrote; “I wanna get citizenship in Ghana!!!! America made to tear black men down if you don’t follow orders!”

This isn’t the initial occasion the rapper has mentioned Ghana since his initial visit in 2023. During a question and answer session on X in October 2023, Meek Mill revealed his intention to revisit Ghana.

Although he didn’t specify a precise date, Meek Mill pledged to sign an artist from Ghana during his upcoming trip.

His initial visit stirred controversy when he filmed a music video at the Jubilee House, drawing criticism from Ghanaians.

Accusations of “desecrating” the Jubilee House surfaced, with MPs voicing concerns about potential security risks.

In a statement, Mill said he would “take responsibility for my mistake. To the people of Ghana, no video I drop is ever meant to disrespect the people of Ghana,” he wrote.

“The fastest way to make connection is thru music [sic] and I wanted to do that with displaying art. I’m in my 30s from America and didn’t know much about the lifestyle.”

He added that officials for Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo, may not have been aware he was shooting a music video, saying the set-up had been “a small camera and a kid”.

Meanwhile, this development follows social media speculation suggesting that he might be one of the unnamed musicians reportedly involved in sexual relations with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.

These allegations emerged in a lawsuit against the American music mogul, accusing him of sexual assault and sex trafficking.

However, the artist’s identity remains undisclosed in the publicly available documents, and he has not been directly accused of any wrongdoing in the lawsuit filed by Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones.
