Hilarious Reactions to Meek Mill’s Tweet about Streaming in Africa

There are a million ways to go viral on Twitter, but you never want to get on the bad side of Africans. This was the case for American rapper Meek Mill when he tweeted what he thought was an honest question on his social media account. The rapper got curious about music streaming in Africa, and he tweeted:

“Do a lot of people play my music in South Africa I remember having a big show ‘there’ a few years back … how do y’all listen to our music in South Africa???? On what platform or in Nigeria?”

This tweet went viral quickly and got Nigerians and South Africans uniting to call out the rapper on his ignorance. It also attracted side comments from other Africans, while others simply scrolled through the comment section to have a good laugh.

Even though the international rapper put out more tweets to clarify his question, the comment section housed more angry users. We have filtered through the comment section to list the top hilarious reactions to Meek Mill’s tweet and we hope you have a good laugh.

First up is the tweet from @dme_363 which received support from over 3000 people:

“I don’t know about South Africa and Nigeria, but here in Namibia, we take empty bottles to communicate with the ancestors and your music starts playing from the clouds. #MusicWithDME

Then @thesheddyking quoted:

“We send birds to America to memorize songs then have them sing it to us when we gather at the village square.”

A tweet from @Ro_Henny_ went:

“Well, it depends on the season. In summer we hear it through the trunk of an elephant. In spring the giraffes catch signal and play it out loud. You get me?”

@Am_Blujay tweeted:

“Normally we use rocks but on a good day we use trees or we get one person to sing for the whole village”

@Ketso28 took her time to comment:

“On a good day we climb the mountain to listen to the forest play your music. On days when it’s rainy, we go down the nearest river and a mermaid comes out to sing your songs. We have only one computer here in my village, so it was my turn to tweet. 🙏 will hear from me next year.”

Then @Shaun_TMM6 gave a visual representation of music streaming:

In all that was ongoing, @AdvoBarryRoux simply asked:

“Who are you?”

@amourab added:

“Once a year, the town crier would inform us the date of music listening feast. Then we would converge at the village square where the king would then command the royal parrot to replay songs it has learnt by flying seven seas and seven rivers to the US to learn.”

These tweets from these users summed up the situation to point to the unity between Nigerians and South Africans to diss the common enemy.
