"A Star Is Bored" Find Out More About Shilly The Bored Ape:
A star was born on Twitter yesterday as longtime Bored Ape Yacht Club member Shwaz announced his new role as his Bored Ape’s manager.
“Ugh, so my Bored Ape aka my digital identity (Shilly) went solo,” Shwaz tweeted along with an 11 second teaser video. “He offered me the role of band manager which I took cuz I need the money. Well actually it's unpaid but he said it could lead to good opportunities in 7-10 years. Anyway, join the discord: https://discord.com/invite/Dy6HUAXNvS
Following Shwaz announcement, the Bored Ape Gazette reached out to him to find out more about his new boss Shilly.
“So Shilly is a recording artist,” Shwaz explained. “He said he's gonna become the biggest rockstar in The Otherside. He's been in the studio with Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, Taking Back Sunday) and is dropping a video for his debut single "I'm Boring" in November. I'm just his manager and he treats me terribly and makes me get him Truly Lemonades constantly. idk even know why I’m doing this. Markets down. Needed the work.”
In Shwaz Twitter post he also asked the community to join Shilly’s new Discord and he told the bored Ape Gazette that there will be an NFT drop soon.
“Why does anyone join a Discord? Because we hate ourselves,” Shwaz said. “Also, there will be an NFT drop. I'll be honest, Shilly hates NFTs (don't tell him he is one lol). We convinced him to drop NFT access passes but he's adamant that he drop music/ content first because he's not about making people pay for shit when they don't know what they're paying for. The Discord will be the best spot (for now) to learn what Shilly is all about and where you'll be able to hear music before anyone else.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Shwaz and Shilly and will let you know when they release Shilly's debut single!
