Popular rapper, Wale has shared a screenshot of a very harsh DM he received from a woman for not acknowledging her nephew who is reportedly his 1-year-old fan.
In the direct message, the woman alleged that the lyricist repeatedly got tagged to videos of her nephew listening to his songs but he did not repost them.
She then vowed to tell her nephew how much of a bad person Wale is when he grows up since “he can’t reciprocate the love a 1-year-old is giving him”.
See what the fan shared,
Wale simply suggested that her complaint was crazy.
Olubowale Victor Akintimehin (born September 21, 1984), better known by his stage name Wale is an American rapper. He first rose to prominence in 2006, when his song “Dig Dug (Shake It)” became popular in his hometown. Wale became locally recognized and continued recording music for the regional audience. Producer Mark Ronson discovered Wale in 2006 and signed him to Allido Records in 2007. While signed to that label, Wale released several mixtapes and appeared in national media including MTV and various Black-American-focused magazines. A song called “Ridin’ in That Black Joint” was featured in the popular video game Saints Row 2’s soundtrack in 2008.
In 2008, Wale signed with Interscope Records for $1.3 million, and his debut album Attention Deficit was released in 2009 with the singles “Chillin”, “Pretty Girls”, and “World Tour”. The album, although under-shipped, received positive reviews from critics. In early 2011, Wale signed with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, where members of the label released a compilation album, Self Made Vol. 1 on May 23, 2011. His second studio album, Ambition was released November 1, 2011, with mixed reviews.

In 2002, he graduated from the Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and moved to Largo, Maryland in Prince George’s County.

Wale’s love of the game of football and the Washington Redskins has led to a longstanding rumor that Wale had a tattoo of tight end Chris Cooley.
