American rapper Meek Mill has deleted a promo video he posted on Instagram hours after he shared it with his followers on the platform and on Twitter.
Even though no reason has been given for the deletion, it is widely believed that it is from backlash arising from the fact that portions of the viral video were shot in and around the Jubilee House during his recent visit.
The Twitter link that led to the Instagram reel is still up but leads to a blank page.
In the said video, Meek Mill is captured in different places at the presidency, from the frontage, through the main corridors, in the main conference hall – at a point positioned behind the presidential lectern – and later in a sitting area rapping.
Social media users, especially on Twitter, were largely angered with what they describe as near desecration of the presidency, citing moral and security grounds.
Influencers on the platform have also attracted tonnes of comments that are largely critical of government for allowing such sensitive areas to be filmed for a music video.
Meek Mill, Jubilee House and White House were in the top trends from Sunday evening through to Monday morning.
It must be noted that a small portion of the commenters are justifying it, stating that it is not too much of a big deal.
