According to Egypt Independent, the Sicko Mode hitmaker has shared an official statement on his Twitter account responding to the accusations he’d received.

The statement reads:

“I am writing to you to address the blatant inaccurate reports that have apparently lead to permits being paused for my concert scheduled for July 28, 2023 at the Giza Pyramids. My understanding is that the Egyptians Musicians Syndicate took this action in response to bot generated fake information regarding my concerts and character.

There is not a single lyric I have written or recording I have made that advocates or endorses anything derogatory to any people, much less the Egyptian people. Nothing in my music lends itself to any kind of ‘strange ritual.

I am a great admirer of Egyptian culture and history. That is why I selected the iconic Pyramids of Giza to perform and preview my first album release in five years.

I am from Houston, Texas. I grew up in a family that respects people, loves God, respects Allah and attends church regularly.

Please don’t let the online spread of false information and hatred derail this event which will bring positive and international attention to Egypt, its economy and it’s amazing treasures.”
