Dante Bowe Apologizes After Being Booted Off Maverick City Music
Multi-platinum selling performer and award-winning songwriter Dante Bowe has issued a statement of apology after he has been booted off Grammy Award-winning worship group Maverick City Music. It has alleged that Bowe's behavior has been inconsistent with what the band says is their "core values and beliefs."
Bowe writes, "I sincerely apologize for the impact of my behavior and that it has offended many people on the platform we share together. This experience has been a very real reminder of the importance of being incredibly intentional with how I utilize and engage with the tools social platforms provide."
Bowe came under scrutiny after posting a video of himself inside a party bus listening to rapper Bad Bunny and dancing to a song with overtly sexual lyrics. He also raised eyebrows at the Grammys after saying he hoped to see openly gay rapper Lil Nas X perform at the awards show.
Bowe has temporarily disabled his social media accounts. Bowe writes, "In light of recent events and opinions, I've talked to some of the wisest leaders and brothers around me. I'll be taking time off social media to rest mentally and physically.
"Years ago, when I dreamt of all I would accomplish one day, I didn't account for the pressure and opinions that would come with it. It's important for everyone to know when to step back and refocus. Hope y'all understand and support. I'll hit you up when I'm back. Love you guys! This is for the best."
Maverick City Music stated Tuesday they are putting a "pause" on their relationship with Bowe. "Decisions like these are not easy because of the level of nuance, both professionally and personally, but we felt it necessary to address," the statement read.
