Why Meek Mill Wants to Migrate to Ghana

Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill has expressed his desire to leave the United States and become a citizen of Ghana, citing the Unites State’s systemic challenges for Black men.

Amid the release of new music and his name being mentioned in connection with a recent sexual assault lawsuit involving Sean “Diddy” Combs, Meek Mill is facing a storm of scrutiny. However, he remains resolute in his plans to migrate to what he refers to as the “Mother Land,” stating that the U.S. is “made to tear Black men down.”

A Love Affair with Ghana

Meek Mill’s connection to Ghana is not new. He has previously performed in the West African country at the Afro Nation music festival and met with Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

Despite facing backlash for filming parts of a music video in a government seat, Meek Mill has apologized and continues to express his admiration for Ghana and his desire to collaborate with Ghanaian artists.

The rapper finds himself embroiled in controversy following a footnote in a lawsuit filed against Diddy. The lawsuit, brought by Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, a former producer and videographer for Combs, includes a redacted name of a rapper described as “a Philadelphia rapper who dated Nicki Minaj.” This description has led to speculation about Meek Mill’s involvement, though he has not been directly named.

In response to the swirling rumors and allegations, Meek Mill took to Twitter to vehemently deny any accusations related to his sexual orientation. He asserted his heterosexuality and warned against anyone challenging his manhood, stating, “I have the right to say I ain’t gay and I’ll trash anybody that play with my manhood lol.”
