Maverick City Music Part Ways with Dante Bowe
However, they never specified what behavior led to them cutting ties with Bowe.
Maverick City Music is a Christian collective of different gospel artists all over the world who come from different backgrounds. Dante, 29, from North Carolina, has been part of the contemporary worship music group since 2019.
Maverick City Music went on to Instagram to make the big statement public which has left their followers wondering. In a statement on their Instagram, the collective said;
“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 them.
“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 needs 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.”
In the statement, they seem to suggest that they are open to working with the musician in the near future if he adheres to their core values.
Dante responded an hour later on his Instagram which is now private. He wrote out a statement saying;
“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.”
His fans and supporters went to the comment section to support and encourage him. Others expressed their confusion as to what is happening.
Both Dante and Maverick City Music are yet to specify the behaviors that led to them cutting ties.
Response From Fans
Obviously, such news from Maverick City would raise eyebrows and even more questions. Theories as to why Dante was dropped from Maverick City began flooding on Twitter as the news spread.

As theories continue flooding, it will never be known as to why he was dropped unless the two parties reveal what happened. Maverick City Music turned off their comments while Dante put his Instagram private and said he will be taking a social media break.
