A Wa West Member of Parliament has said music videos at the presidency from Ghanaian artistes should be expected by citizens soon.
He says the likes of Shatta Wale, Kwabena Kwabena and other upcoming artistes will be granted the opportunity to hype their art using the Jubilee House.
Peter Lanchene Toobu’s comments stem from a music video shot at the presidency by American rapper, Meek Mill.
Meek Mill visited Ghana and performed at the AfroNation concert Thursday, December 29, 2022, after which he took a tour at the seat of president with his entourage.
Scenes from their visit sparked controversies on social media after many protocols were breached.
Speaking on Onua TV’s Maakye Monday, January 9, 2022, Mr. Toobu indicated the initiative might have stemmed from a political diplomacy between the United States and Ghana governments to promote and enhance their ties.
According to the lawmaker, a Capitol Hill version of the video might have been taken already which he expects to see soon on the airwaves.
Meanwhile, he believes Ghanaian musicians would be given same opportunity to use such state facilities to promote their work of that of Meek Mill is nothing close to political diplomacy.
“Very soon you’ll see Shatta Wale, Kwabena Kwabena and a child from my constituency starting his music career shooting their videos there [Jubilee House].
“Maybe we’ll see Capitol Hill soon in the video to suggest Ghana and the US are enticing our ties through music video. Maybe the Presidency would issue a statement that it’s part of political diplomacy and that of the Capitol Hill has been shot already,” he said.
