Maverick City Music Puts a ‘Pause’ on Relationship with Dante Bowe
News just broke that Maverick City Music and Dante Bowe have parted ways due to “inconsistent” behavior.
The worship collective has taken the Christian music industry by storm with songs like their Grammy-winning single “Jireh,” and “Promises”, which has 92 million views on YouTube.
Gospel singer Dante Bowe has been a part of the group since its inception in 2019, but on Tuesday they announced they were distancing themselves from Bowe, citing actions that contradict their values.
An official reason hasn’t been cited and Bowe has not made a public statement yet. According to many on Twitter, the singer allegedly posted a nude photo of himself on his Instagram Stories. It was quickly deleted, and he said he was “hacked.” The page is now private.
The statement from Maverick City Music then came late last night.
“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,” the statement read. “Decisions like these are not easy because of the level of nuance, both professionally and personally, but we felt it necessary to address.”
The group did not specify what exactly prompted the pause in their relationship.
