Blakk Rasta has joined Shatta Wale to defend Meek Mill over his Jubilee House video which triggered millions of Ghanaians to slam him on the internet earlier yesterday.
In the now-deleted video, Meek Mill was granted access to the corridors of a section of the Jubilee House reserved for only the president and his cabinet.
The American rapper was also given the privilege to use the President’s podium which is regarded as gross disrespect to the highest office in the land.
Although the rapper has issued an unqualified apology to Ghanaians and the office of the president but some people still think he did nothing wrong hence the apology wasn’t necessary.
Reacting to this brouhaha, Blakk Rasta has descended on the critics who claim Meek Mill’s career is even dead therefore he shouldn’t have been given the kingly treatment he enjoyed during his stay in Ghana.
According to Blakk Rasta, all the people making such comments are delusional because the rapper has more influence and international appeal than 99% of our musicians.
Sharing his thoughts about the issue which has fats developed into a national topic he wrote;
“Some people call him a dead horse, others call him a rapper who has gone downhill. My brother, my sister in fact a dead lion is not as good as a living dog. Meek Mill is still a man who has a lot of influence. Meek Mill is only 25v years old. Meek Mill has a lot of life. Dead as some people claim he is, he is more alive than 99% of musicians we have in this country in terms of patronage and in terms of influence.”
“we live in a country where music only trends after we have gone naked on stage. We live in a country where people do not believe in live music. Everything is computerized and they claim this is the computer age. We live in a country where music is so disrespected that musicians come on stage and do karaoke and there are people who clap for them. You expect your music to cross the borders of this country”.
“Sometimes I sit back and I blame the event organizers who book these people to come on stage and do the Karaoke. Let your fans do the Karaoke. Let them play back your music and sing along to the music, not you guys who sometimes even sing off-key.
Amidst all this brouhaha, we are yet to read an official statement from the office of the president and the jubilee house.
Hopefully, an official communique will be released soon to clear the air and also explain some of the protocols observed inside the Jubilee House.
