This piece is about Zlatan Ibile, his journey to fame and how he has retired olamide Baddo from the music scene
Temidayo by name but popularly known as Zlatan Ibile, started his thrive in the music industry even as a student of Mapoly, he began to make his way to greatness when he murdered many talents at Airtel one mic challenge where he won his first music accolade then his first car.
He then got signed to Coded music where he got some fame after a lot of ups and downs…..The Zanku crooner began to gain a lot of fan around 2017 after he featured Ybnl boss, olamide on a song dubbed “Body’, he became known to many across the country after the release of able God by chinko, where he featured him, alongside lil kesh, where according to fan Zlatan ibile stole the song with his punch lines despite singing for few minutes….On that track he proved to the industry that a force to reckon with has arrived, and as we can see, like a storm, the force is shaking everywhere.
He didn’t stop on the hustle he released a lot of tracks and got featured in many….. However, He took over the street when he released the smash hit single ‘Zanku’, which introduced Nigerians and music lovers worldwide to a new dance step which is loved by many
Zanku gave the street a slang called ‘Gbe Body E which trended for a very long time, and still quite trending till date….Zanku was however nominated for song of the year at the Soundcity music festival.
He got the attention of the likes of Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid. Lil Kesh, Tekno and so on which led to a lot of big features for him…. Remember Burna Boy featured him a song dubbed Kill Dem?? Can you still remember Davido Featuring him on a song tagged “bumbum” too?? And host of other features that took his name out of the country making him a very big aristes.
Moreover, Zlatan Ibile has began to prove that he has retired Olamide as the king of the street by his commendable consistency and a lot of features of which the Ybnl boss ain’t even getting anymore..
Meanwhile, lil kesh, Oladips and maybe naira Marley were tipped to be the next street king after their breakthrough but they failed to live up to the expectations,of which Zlatan came from behind to cement his place, sending most of the previously reigning guys out of market……In 2019 only almost all the industry most big names and upcoming artistes featured the Bolanle crooner of which most of them were hits.
It is observed that olamide no longer releases songs again like before and we wouldn’t be wrong to say the reason is because Zlatan Ibile has taken over the street and not giving him breathing space……I hope you all can still remember how Olamide baddo used to be the one everybody wants to feature, before the emergence of Zlatan ibile.
Although some might want to argue that Olamide has been in the industry for a long time and has decided to slow down as probably there is nothing else to prove anymore, but in the real sense Zlatan Ibile is the main force that caused the decline.
A lots of street bangers that has been made by zlatan ibile, both his own songs, and the featured ones, already made the big names in the industry take him as the new King of the street and also the street’s favorite, forgetting olamide baddo…..
One reason why he is one of the most sought out artiste in the industry currently is because they saw the need to feature him and this is because they knew the song will turn out to be a hit……

He also had many personal hits from Zanku, to his latest, Shomo. He released his debut album, zanku to the world, which peaked number one spot on Naija Apple music albums, and then the recently released Ep road to CDK, an Ep containing six tracks namely Road to CDK, The matter ft Papisnoop, Unripe pawpaw featuring the whole Zanku records family, Shomo featuring Jamopyher and so on.
In a space of few years Zlatan had a lot of hit song to his name, it is safe to say that Olamide has found his Heir, though Zlatan would still need to do a lot of work to reach Olamide’s level but it looks like he is set on the mark already, only needs to remain consistent for years and continually doing the needful.
