In what appears to be a genuine piece of social media frustration, Happy Mondays and Black Grape singer Shaun Ryder has taken to Twitter to accuse his former manager of “robbing” his official handle and refusing to give it back.
Tweets from what appear to be the Salford performer’s genuine new Twitter channel urge followers to move across from @officialswr to @Shaunryderx – which went live in October with a post about new management.
It appears that Shaun has now become narked enough to go public about his struggle to get his hands on his 21,000 former fans, tweeting:
Shaun has some way to go with only 4,000 followers on his new account but I’m sure his fans will catch on soon as the former handle hasn’t been updated for a few months.
No response as yet from his former manager.
