How do I remove/edit the welcome message when logging into my DO MEAN droplet?

The welcome message looks along the lines of:

Welcome to the MEAN Stack!

MEAN is a boilerplate that provides a nice starting point for MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications.
It is designed to give you quick and organized way to start developing of MEAN based web apps with useful modules like
mongoose and passport pre-bundled and configured. We mainly try to take care of the connection points between existing
popular frameworks and solve common integration problems.

Any help would be appreciated.
