Multi-platinum selling performer and award-winning songwriter Dante Bowe is taking time away from social media 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, "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.
The worship group does not give any details on the behavior that led to the decision. However, the Instagram statement adds, "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."
The artist recently announced "Joyful the Tour" featuring Social Club Misfits. But it is unclear if he will move ahead with the tour.
