Meanwhile, as the debate over Bow Wow’s $1,000 ticket continued to dominate the internet, the rapper himself went to a networking site to block the hate.
He said, ‘My meeting starts at $150. Only report diamond packages. Don’t pretend to see me, Stack. There are 3 packages to choose from. Please read before posting S**T on this blog.’
Also, the artist on Bounce With Me said, ‘I don’t recommend going to the internet when I’m awake. They still have to talk about me. Who wants to see him for $1000 a week saying, “Bow Wow sold out the O2 arena. He’s a goat”?’
Fans react to Bow Wow’s $1000 fan meeting ticket.
While a $1,000 ticket for Bow Wow went wild on Twitter, fans took a stand.
One fan said, ‘It’s not a bow-wow asking for $1,000 to meet.’
In addition, one netizen joked, “Lil Bow who greets and greets for $1,000 in 2022. Wow, it’s really nocturnal, but when I saw it I thought it was a fake.”
Not everyone is doing their own research. A $150 meet and greet option that you think you’ll have to pay $1000 to meet WoW is right there, but of course people don’t research and only know half of something right now. no reason

It’s nice to pay $1000 to meet someone and say ‘Lol Bow Wow. It will be the best financial advice he has ever received.’
Nevertheless, some fans have come to the rapper’s defense on the platform.
One fan said, ‘Did you know that 10 ppl in almost every state pay for Bow Wow’s meetups and greetings? It doesn’t matter how many years. And why do you guys have to play with the boy’s money to be funny?’
Did you know that almost every state pays 10 ppl to meet and greet Bow Wow? It doesn’t matter how many years.
