No More Childish Gambino? Donald Glover Changes Instagram Username

In 2017, Donald Glover, also known by his musical alias Childish Gambino, procliaimed that he will be retiring the Gambino alias during his performance at Governors Ball Music Festival. “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album", Glover said.

In 2018, he went on to say his This Is America Tour would be the last Gambino tour. Two years later, he released the album 3.15.20, which may be the last Childish Gambino album.

Fast forward to today, and Donald Glover officially changes his Instagram handle from @ChildishGambino to @DonaldGlover. Has he officially retired the Gambino alias? It appears so, but this does not mean he's retiring from music.

In fall of 2020, he sat down with Michaela Cole for a conversation over zoom and said he still has plans to release music, but it's unclear if it will be under the Gambino alias.
