North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
The MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has insisted that the President of Ghana must render an apology to citizens for allowing American rapper Meek Mill to shoot a music video at the Jubilee House.
According to him, it is disrespectful to Ghanaians and the country to give the Presidential podium to a musician to shoot a video since the seat of government is an embodiment of the collective image of the citizens.
Speaking in an interview on Joy FM, Midday News on Monday, he said “….It is horrible and that is why I am shocked that up to now, nobody has been fired and we haven’t seen a statement from the President apologizing to Ghanaians. This has brought shame to Ghanaians. The Presidency should show us some respect.”
Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa also disagreed with people who said the video is an opportunity to market Ghana since none of the lyrics made mention of Ghana.
“Those who have argued that perhaps this was a marketing opportunity to promote Ghana should go listen to the lyrics since there was no mention of Ghana. And the explicit content, how our women are degraded, the content, the swear words, I mean nothing in it promotes Ghana or projects it,” he said.
“So please spare me the hogwash about marketing and promoting Ghana because it doesn’t hold,” he added.
He further stated that the NDC will make sure there is an investigation to punish those who allowed the filming at the Jubilee House.
Since last night, the Jubilee House, which houses the president, gained popularity alongside American rapper, Meek Mill.
The trend is due to an American rapper, Meek Mill being seen in a viral video on social media rapping at the seat of government.
He is seen in the company of a group of backers rapping.
The rapper has since deleted the music video he filmed at the Jubilee House from his Instagram page.
