MNEK Jokes About Name Pronunciation on Twitter

Thumbnail for 108879

Considering that MNEK has helped shape British pop, you’d think that people would have learned how to pronounce his name by now. From his singles like ‘Never Forget You’ to his writing credits on hits like Duke Dumont’s ‘Needed Me’, he is killing it.

Nevertheless, certain fans STILL struggle and the ‘Paradise’ star had a little bit of a joke about it on Twitter.

If you wanna leave
if you wanna go

baby don’t leave
why don’t we go
somewhere somewhere somewhere somewhere

why don’t we go
somewhere somewhere somewhere somewhere

Would you like to go to paradise
Cos I’m not tryna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realest lies ever told
so let’s run away and find paradise
paradise
and soon paradise will be home

If you wanna leave
if you wanna go
baby don’t leave yet

take my hand, shut your eyes and imagine
wouldn’t it be nice
just to have, an escape, a distraction
far away from this life
I tried to be cool but this world’s too cruel
for me, to sit around, & simply drown in fear
so I’m asking you, what would you do
if we could get out of here

Would you like to go to paradise
Cos Im not tryna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realest lies ever told
so let’s run away and find paradise
paradise
and soon paradise will be home

If you wanna leave
if you wanna go
baby don’t leave yet

your love’s like a fantasy
nothing like what I saw on the news yesterday
another man down, blood on the ground
makes me wanna just runaway
where we run is a mystery
ignorance is bliss to me
cos whenever I turn on my tv it’s just misery

I tried to be cool but this world’s too cruel
for me, to sit around, & simply drown in fear
so I’m asking you, what would you do
if we could get out of here

Would you like to go to paradise
Cos I don’t wanna go alone
Runaway with me to paradise
If you wanna leave, then we can go
Cos the real world told me lies
The realest lies ever told
so let’s run away and find paradise
paradise
and soon paradise will be home

(Paradise is an escape)
Hooooome
(If you wanna leave if you wanna go)
Hoooome
(If you wanna leave if you wanna go)
Paradise is in the mind baby
Paradise is in the mind baby
it won’t take too long to find baby
Paradise is in the mind baby
In Paradise we’re free
to do what we want to do
we’re free
baby

To clear things up, MNEK is pronounced exactly how it is spelt (EM-EN-EE-KAY) but that doesn’t stop people from messing it up. A fan of the ‘At Night (All I Think About Is You)’ star, Rowlands, recently tweeted: “How the F you pronounce MNEK?”

He then listed some potential candidates: “Muneck? Neck / Em Neck / Money K / Hmm Neck / MuNeek”.

Seeing the struggle play out online, MNEK simply retweeted the question, adding to it: “help him guys”.

How the F you pronounce MNEK?
Muneck?
Neck
Em Neck
Money K
Hmm Neck
MuNeek

I think I’ve over thought the whole thing

Sure enough, fans resolved the issue and MNEK joked that he likes ‘Money K’.

The ‘Ready for Your Love’ hitmaker wrote: “upon reflection, Money K goes off” and to be honest, with MNEK’s hit rate, we think that Money K works. He’s been behind UK million sellers including: Jax Jones’ ‘You Don’t Know Me’ and Little Mix’s ‘Touch’.

MNEK has even changed his Twitter handle to Money K for the time being.

MNEK recently scored another Top 40 hit with his recent Stormzy collaboration: ‘Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 2’.

The stunning single looks set to break the Top 20 this week and should hopefully clear up any name issues.

That Money K reign won’t let up!
