Zlatan Ibile needs to tread carefully or risk failing where others have in the past

Zlatan is undoubtedly the rave of the moment and the love he is getting now, courtesy of his immaculate craft, is almost unmatched. He and his regular accomplice, Naira Marley are the main men in the industry. The duo appears to have everything running smoothly for them despite the difficulties they were met with at the start of their budding career.

But it is important that Zlatan notes that if there is one thing that is affiliated with fans of any craft at all and their collective sudden show of love, it is how quickly they are to withdraw it once what they perceive that boundaries are constantly being overstepped.

Zlatan appears to be heading towards a new direction with the singles now. On his last release ”Bolanle”, which is doing pretty well on charts at the moment, he made the song entirely about a wealthier man snatching a poor man’s girl. While the lyrics appeared to have a bit of man shaming in it, the video supplemented well enough and erased any reservations one might have. The bolanle in question here had her man abusing her and also not taking care of her according to the music video.

But it seems a pattern might be developing for the indigenous rapper now. He has shared a snippet for what might be his next single and I’m afraid he has carried on with the spirit of shaming men. Particularly men who are not financially positioned to do things. He calls this next track Yeye boyfriend, which translates to practically “less of a man”, shaming men who are unable to provide for their women with the lyrics.

The conversations about whether songs are out there enabling vices never seem to go away. While Zlatan might think it is a good idea to have your name is spoken about, good or bad, I’d suggest that he threads carefully on that path. Recall that Lil kesh is still somewhat buried under the rubbles of the backlash he got for that insensitive release, ”Logo Benz”.
