Meek Mill has responded to the negative comments that accompanied a seemingly harmless tweet about Africans and streaming. While reflecting on his past visit to South Africa, the Philly native questioned the preferred music streaming platforms of his South Africa and Nigerian fans. 

In a tweet on Saturday (Jan. 20), he asked, “Do a lot of people play my music in South Africa? I remember having a big show there a few years back… How do you all listen to our music in South Africa???? On what platform, or in Nigeria?”

However, the comment received backlash from African Twitter, with many accusing him of ignorance. Fans humorously responded, claiming they used unconventional methods like rocks, trees, or a town crier with Spotify access.

“We don’t have any music streaming services in Nigeria,” one fan wrote. “We have this guy who’s the only one who has access to Spotify; he’s a town crier who comes every Friday to perform your songs for us. This is how we listen to your music. I hope this helps.”

In response to the negative reactions, Meek Mill returned to Twitter on Sunday (January 21) to clarify his original post. The 36-year-old, known for his overbearing social media posts explained that he was seeking information on music distribution in Africa.

“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.
