Rapper T-Pain recently tweeted a video of his Instagram request folder, filled with DM requests from top celebrities, who the rapper claims to have unknowingly ignored for the past two years. "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 stated in the video, as he scrolled down his long list of unattended DM requests, which included messages from A-listers like Fergie, Viola Davis, Diplo and many more.
A glimpse from the video showed a message from Ghanaian singer Wendy Shay among others.
