T-PAIN only JUST found out about the request folder on Instagram and realized he’s been ignoring HUNDREDS of messages, including notifications from big-name celebrities.
He shared a video on TIkTok captioning it, “How do I super apologize? Press conference? Townhall meeting? I’m dumb”
In a voice-over, he explains, “I was today years old when I found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me.”
T-Pain also says he did check the folder once, “but it was just “thousands and thousands of messages like, ‘Can I buy you a drink?’ ‘Oh, my sister’s a bartender, can you follow her?’ ” It wasn’t until his social media manager pointed out there were a few messages he should look at that he went back to it.
“I think everybody needs to understand that,” he said. “I learn how to post and I learn how to get the f— off of.”
I swear!! I’m just now seeing all these messages and mentions TODAY!!!! How do I super apologize? Press conference? Town hall meeting? I’m dumb🤦🏿♂️ pic.twitter.com/RFhjjs5sja

So what has he missed out on? Apparently requests from Viola Davis (or her assistant), Fergie, Diplo, and more.
The good news is, now that T-Pain has discovered his request folder new collaborations may be on the way.
