Popular Nigerian singer, Zlatan Ibile has disclosed how veteran acts, Olamide and Davido helped his career and aided his swift rise to fame.
He shared that their benevolent efforts helped aid his breakthrough in the music industry.
He asserted that his story changed when he met Olamide and since then, it’s been God’s blessings.
He said: “I qualified among the two to go represent my school in the grand finale [of a music competition]. So, like tactically out of 140 candidates.
With just two tracks, I just started rapping. I know nothing about music. I just started writing and downloading beats online.
And out of 140 people, I don’t know how God did it, I won a brand new car when I was 19 years old. My first semester in school
“From there, I just sat down and said to myself, if I can win a brand new car, seems God is telling me something. I took it seriously from there.”
“After that, it took me another four years after I won the car. I ended up using the car as a taxi because I could not maintain the car or maintain the lifestyle.
Before, Olamide saw me one day and hit me up on Instagram. He called me up and made a song for me, for free,[and also] came for the video shoot for free.
“To me, that was like my breakthrough song in 2017.“
