Grand Theft Auto 5 is the fifth installment of the popular video game series.
Zlatan Ibile has reacted to his official DJ’s move of naming his dog ‘Tacha’, days after he (Zlatan) made headlines for mocking a 2019 Big Brother Naija Housemate with same name with a ‘body odour’ song.
Posing with his new dog in the photo he shared, DJ 4kerty wrote “Tacha #Rottweiler, Barking Dog”.
Zlatan who commented on the post wrote “Ki lorun” meaning “What’s Smelling”.
When you’re street, you’re street OoO! You can take the boy out of the street, but you can never take the street out of him.Zlatan recently posted a picture of him and Otedola’s Gem, DJ Cuppy while on set for Gelato video shoot, both of them are pictured in a very romantic mood. Well, Daz what Star does!But seems the Zanku master is already thinking too far regarding the whole attention he has been getting from Cuppy, which I believe he was opportune because of recent wave-making in the music industry, Slimcase sure enjoys same grace during his own regime too.The mysterious Bolanle girl, that receive some expensive treats and lump fame in a space of a month was also part of those the Zanku master has a plan for.See what he posted below:-
Actually, you might not comprehend the real meaning behind this caption though, but am sure the few Yoruba boys with street knowledge will be able to relate perfectly well.For the sake of those that don’t understand, I’ll explain. On the street of the west coast of Nigeria, when someone says “La” meaning “Lick” in English, it ineptly means “Fvck“. e.g ” Mo ti La omo yen ri” it means “I have slept with that Girl before”.So in this Zlatan’s context, “Ati Cuppy, Ati Bolanle, Alapo” it means “I will Sleep with both DJ Cuppy and Bolanle“. Going through the comment sections of the post, a lot of his followers easily relates to his caption and they replied accordingly.
During the chat, he talked about his new dance, Gbeku, discovering Poco Lee, his four days EFCC custody and Naira Marley’s Soapy dance.
A few days ago, Nigerian rapper dropped his collaborative effort, ‘Shotan’ with Mummy Jam Jam herself, Tiwa Savage.
On Tuesday, June 16, 2018, an interview on Midday Oasis of Zlatan, the second hottest rapper in Nigeria with D2Tun and Kemi Smallz debuted on Cool FM Nigeria’s YouTube page.
During the show, he talked about a number of things and here are the top five he said;
How he discovered Poco Lee
Poco Lee is Nigeria’s premier street dance maven. Everyday, people aspire to ‘gbese’ like him. His Z.A.N.K.U moves made him a social media sensation. He had been doing it underground, but his moves at Agege Stadium during Small Doctor’s show in December 2018 helped him gain notoriety.
Zlatan is largely credited for helping his popularity, but the rapper humbly refuses to take credit for Poco’s popularity after D2Tun asks him, “You actually found Poco Lee, right?”
In response, Zlatan said, “(A year ago), He posted a (dance) video to my song, and I think I reposted it and then… from there, the video went viral…”
The conversation also piqued on how Zlatan helped Segun Waya even before he was properly blown and how upcoming artist, Buju caught his attention.
On his EFCC situation

Earlier in the year, Zlatan got picked up by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alongside Naira Marley,Rahman Jago and Guccy Branch. He was later released alongside Jago and Branch, but Marley was arraigned before the Ikoyi Federal High Court.
Upon his release, he released the freestyle, ‘4 Days in Okotie-Eboh.’ It went viral. When quizzed on the issue, he called EFCC his “friends” and said of his arrest that, “Nothing actually happened. They just came, they picked us up and to confirm one or two things.”
When quizzed further on the experience, he said, “It has never been a great experience, you just have to learn new things and experience new things and see another perspective of life. Whenever things like that happen to me, I just see them as a bridge to the next level.”
The rapper also denied any involvement with Ruggedman’s attack in London and called his EFCC experience, “lovely,” because he got to meet different people and performed ‘Killin Dem‘ for a guy on his birthday while in jail.
Is Zlatan a yahoo boy?
Naira Marley, who was arrested alongside Zlatan was charged to court on fraud-related offences. Rumours swirled that both rappers were yahoo boys after they appeared to support internet fraud.
Nonetheless, as the issue got bigger, they released a collaboration titled, ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy?’
When asked whether he was a yahoo boy, the rapper laughed and said, “I don’t know for them o (laughs)… Can’t you hear the bangers?”
Zanku to Gbeku
Zlatan claims he brought the dance, ‘zanku’ into the Nigerian mainstream. He also claims that zanku means ‘Zlatan abeg nor kill us.’
But now, he claims that he wants zanku to calm down a little for its little brother called, ‘gbeku.’
A few weeks ago, Naira Marley launched his controversial dance move, ‘Soapy’ with a song of the same name.
Just as the song started topping charts, Nigerians shot viral videos in public places doing the ‘soapy’ dance that mimics male masturbation.
When D2Tun asked Zlatan about the dance, he says, “There’s always a choice in this life. They say, ‘if you can’t beat them, you join them.
“At the same time, if you can’t still join them, you can be on your own. Everyone is going to come online to criticize one thing or the other, but deep down in our hearts, we are all imperfect. We all have places where we’re imperfect…
“And then, everyone will come online to criticize somebody. I don’t criticize like that, I’d rather not talk. Most times, if i do it (talk), after five minutes, I go back and delete my comment….
“It’s a dance, there are some many dance (routines) that you’re going to whine your waist. When Michael Jackson was dancing, his hand was always there (around his crotch). No one was complaining about that, everyone joined the choreography. I don’t think I need to condemn the soapy dance…”
Before the interview ended, Zlatan addressed why he posted a bottle of Krest on his Instagram page after Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo‘s accusation by Busola Dakolo.
He said that he can post anything he wants on his page. A moment later, he then said that he posted it because he knew that if he had posted it, he would get asked about it on Cool FM.
Zlatan Ibile tells his purported snitches not to be quick to judge.

Four days after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission released Zlatan Ibile, the artiste has released a music video to address fake friends and those who snitched on him when he was in the EFCC custody.
The EFCC recently arrested and paraded Zlatan Ibile together with Naira Marleyand three others over their alleged involvement in Internet fraud.
However, four days after he was freed, the artiste has released a music video titled ‘4 days in Okotie Eboh’ to express his disappointment about those he believed snitched on him while he was in the EFCC net.
In the song, which he published on his Instagram page on Sunday, May 19, 2019, the fast-rising artiste advised snitches not to be quick to judge because nobody is holy.
The song opened with a Yoruba proverb that loosely translates as “pretend you were dead, see who will shed tears over your death. Pretend to be broke and see who’ll ignore you”.
Other lines in the song, which was largely sung in the Yoruba language to address his purported snitches thus translates: “My people know me, forget the fact that they tried to give me a bad name.
So, you too can talk (about me) like this and you call yourself my friend. We eat and drink together. Just four days and you can’t hide your hatred for me. You guys didn’t expect me to return. Nobody is holy and don’t be quick to judge”.
The Okotie Eboh in the title of the song is a street in Ikoyi, where the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office is located in Lagos.
