Meek Mill Responds To Getting Clowned Over Viral Tweet About African Music Fans

Meek Mill

The Philly native also catches heat for his grammar.

Meek Mill had X users from two different African countries at his neck. The Philadelphia-raised rap star’s question on the social media platform sparked negative reactions worldwide.

“Do a lot of people play my music in South Africa? I remember having on big show [there a] few years back… how do y’all listen to our music in South Africa???? On what platform or in Nigeria?” Meek posted on Saturday (January 20). 

Other X users from South Africa and Nigeria clowned Meek Mill for his tweet. For example, one person wrote, “Normally we use rocks but on a good day we use trees or we get one person to sing for the whole village.”

Another X user tweeted, “Lol you want to come yet you’re insulting us and looking down?? Anyways, we play your music on a tree… we charge it with oranges.”

On Sunday (January 21), Meek Mill hopped back on X to respond to the negative reactions to his online inquiry. The 36-year-old Expensive Pain album creator explained his original post.

“I was asking how they listen to music in Africa because I wanna handle my business none of my contracts say they have rights to distribute me in Africa… basically looking for the money trail? [I don’t know] what platforms [are] used in South Africa lol,” Meek tweeted.

Nearly 30 minutes later, Meek Mill shared another thought with his 11.3 million X followers. He posted, “People are have losing their minds at a rapid pace!” That tweet led to commenters making fun of the rapper’s grammar.

An X user commented, “Grammar police please.” Additionally, someone wrote, “Your English doesn’t correspond to your lyrics. Who was writing for you?” Another person replied, “English my guy English.”
