Zlatan has made his name as a street king and as Zanku Dance originator.
While Zlatan has dished out street anthems that have dominated the airwaves, he also can be motivational.
The Rapper/Label boss is an inspirational story in his own right. From winning the Airtel-sponsored One Mic talent show held in Abeokuta in 2014 to launching his record label, Zanku Records in 2020, what’s there not be motivated from?
His breakthrough came in form of Chinko Ekun’s 2018 hit song, “Able God” which then went on to popularized “Zanku Dance”.
While the musician has had his own fair share of troubles, which was EFCC arresting him and Naira Marley in 2019 for an alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering of which he was later released.
Shomo ft Oberz, Jamo Pyper, Papisnoop
Just like “Quilox”, “Shomo” has the appearance of a normal street banger. But it’s more than that. The key focus is in Zlatan’s rap which comes up in the first verse.
Papisnoop comes into the second verse with his own motivational story. The song is both a banger and a motivational song at once.
In “Life”, Zlatan shares his backstory, his struggles, and the obstacles he had to overcome before he could get to where he is now.
Most people can relate to this as not everyone came from a backstory where things were kind of smooth.
He also doesn’t hesitate to throw shades at people who looked down on him and mocked him when he was still struggling.
