Meek Mill has apologized for filming a music video at the Ghana presidential palace.
The rapper faced backlash this weekend after posting a video shot at the Jubilee House government building, which doubles as both the official residence and the president’s office in Ghana.
On Monday morning, Ghana’s former deputy education minister, Sam Okuzet Abrakwa, took to Twitter to rip Meek, along with those who approved the music video to be shot.
“Everyone responsible for this vile desecration of Jubilee House by Meek Mill must be fired immediately,” he wrote. Does it reflect positively? Isn’t the government seat of Ghana no longer a high security facility?”
It didn’t take long for Meek to apologize for his actions.
“Sorry if I’m rude to people!” Meek tweeted on Monday. “We are still trying to connect blacks in America and Africa… What I am trying to do is more than just a video and it should be out soon!
In another tweet, the Philadelphia native wrote: [sic] This will help us fix that, no more judgments about each other!”

The backlash comes as Mill joins forces with Fanatics CEO and REFORM Alliance co-chair Michael Rubin to donate $7 million to 60 Philadelphia schools that are well-served by their communities. Arrived shortly after benefitting low-income students from no families.
Meek and Rubin’s donations not only provide scholarships to students in need, but also provide access to much-needed home technology such as laptops, tablets and WiFi.
