The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday released Nigerian singer/rapper, Omoniyi Temidayo, popularly known as Zlatan Ibile.
Zlatan Ibile was arrested on the 10th of May by the EFCC for an alleged involvement in internet fraud activities alongside Naira Marley and three others.
Shortly after the release, news surfaced that it was on the orders of Davido who hired a lawyer for him. However, the news has been debunked by Nigerian big boy, Aremo Gucci who revealed that it was Olamide and Burna Boy that helped Zlatan Ibile.
Aremo Gucci has stated that the release of rapper Zlatan Ibile was secured by Olamide and Burna Boy, not Davido as widely publicized.
Zlatan Ibile was released alongside three others, leaving only Naira Marley still in EFCC custody.
That is that… However in another news, Singer Burna Boy has announced that he would be leaving social media and that his handles will now be controlled by his management.
The announcement might be linked to his recent altercations with social media users after a Twitter user called him out for his comment on streaming numbers which appeared like he was shading Mayorkun .
Burna Boy had tweeted that some musicians actually think streaming numbers is equivalent to talent, which led many fans to think it was a shade thrown at Mayorkun who recently celebrated 70million views across all platforms.
A Twitter user reacted:
“Burna Boy is overrated”
“Burna Boy needs to blow”
This was y’all in 2018.
First he pisses on you all. Calls you “backward unprogressive fools”.
Then disrespects Tiwa
And now Mayorkun.

You people hyped a wallgecko he started to think he’s a crocodile.
In response, the singer shared the below series of tweets.
Lol. Nice comedy. But really If I wanted to call out someone. It won’t be on twitter or Instagram, I’m more of the real life type. I State Facts, I don’t expect people like you to understand cuZ I do not speak unless it’s the TRUTH and I know ur not used to that so I get it.
