GRAMMY award-winning collective Maverick City Music recently announced on social media they have decided to “put a pause” on their professional relationship with Dante Bowe. The collective cited “behavior that is inconsistent with our core values and beliefs” without elaborating on specifics. In their full statement, which you can read below, Maverick City asks for continued support for Dante as a brother in Christ.
Due to behavior that is inconsistent with our core values and beliefs, we have decided to put a pause on our professional relationship with Dante Bowe. Decisions like these are not easy because of the level of nuance, both professionally and personally, but we felt it necessary to address.”
Maverick City Music is a collective of various artists from many different backgrounds and life experiences; as such no one artist’s actions or behavior can always be attributed as a reflection of our core beliefs and values.
Dante is a brother in Christ and as such he has our full commitment and unwavering support as he continues to navigate his path forward. Each of us need God’s grace, and our hope is that we all pray and give him the same opportunity to grow in Christ as we give ourselves.
Coinciding with the statement from Maverick City, Dante Bowe announced plans for a social media hiatus. You can read Dante’s full post below.
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.
Please join us in praying for Dante and Maverick City Music during this difficult time.
