Many of his fans praised him for being able to brush off the haters and focus on his music and fans.
He continued to say, “All new/up & coming artists ingest this into your system pronto: you’re not made for this game if you can’t handle pressure, ‘hate’, critics, bad press, fake love, fake news about you etc… this industry is def not for the fainthearted, trust me I know! Stay prayed up always.”
