PEOPLE – Do not call Master Gims anymore. On Thursday, January 31, the singer announced in his Instagram account that he changed his artistic name (and took the opportunity to give the title of his next album: "Black Belt Part 2:" Transcendence ").
In his post, he writes: "I do not want anyone to call me" # .Master Gims & # 39;. Gims is enough … thanks. " A return to the nickname that he used in his debut with the group Sexion of Assault.
The fanatics quickly responded to the post, looking forward to the next album by the performer of "Bella" and "Always know": "Too many years, I'm very happy", "We look impatiently," or even "If finally!"
On the other hand, they ask themselves about this sudden change of pseudo and ask for explanations: "But why this change?", "Why reason?", "For me it will always be the MÁSTER", "Ok go for Gims, but the teacher was too much smart, "but at least you can tell us why, stp MASTER GIMS?"
An artist not tall in 2018
