Awww…he’s a big boy now! Bow Wow is insisting that people allow him to be a grown man….well to be fair he does have a child of his own now! At any rate, Bow took to social media to alert everyone of the name change saying,
“After BET awards I will no longer go by Bow Wow! I’m going by my real name “Shad Moss”. We made a lot of history as bow bow. Now its time for the next chapter and challenge. Bow wow does not fit who I am today. I’m a father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR Moss to take over!”
We wonder if this will go over the way it did when he changed his name from “Lil Bow Wow” to just “Bow Wow” back in 2002. His core fans accommodated his desire to simply be called Bow Wow…while everyone else is just now hearing about the change as they read this story!
At the time Mr. Moss said,
“I changed my name because I’m getting older now and it’s too many Lil’s. All these Lil’ rappers, I’m just kind of getting real irritated by it. I said, ‘You know what? Drop the Lil’. Forget it. I’m Bow Wow.’ Besides, I’m growing up, I’m not little anymore. [I just decided] two weeks ago. I really got irritable. It’s all these Lil’ cats, forget it. I’m Bow Wow now. Everything is just ‘Bow Wow,’ no ‘Lil’ Bow Wow.”
We wish him well and hope that he is going to be understanding when people don’t abide by his wishes or just blatantly refuse to call him anything else but some form of Bow or Wow! But we do think that Mr. Shad Moss as someone’s father should be allowed to grow up.
