Top Nigerian songwriter, rapper and dancer, Zlatan Ibile, has revealed he saw no reason to have his intimate friend, Naira Marley, on his debut album, Zanku which was released on Friday, November 1.
“The reason why Naira Marley is not on the album is because there is no reason” said Zlatan when asked why Naira Marley was missing on the list of collaborations.
Zlatan reportedly held a listening party for Zanku, which means Zlatan Abeg No Kill Us. The Zanku album is a 17-track album which features top musicians like Davido, Tiwa Savage, Patoranking Barry Jhay, rising artiste – Papisnoop among others with production credit by Rexxie, Speroach Beatz, Kiddominant, Spells, Miraqulous, P Prime and mixed by Spyrit mix. It is not known however, if Naira Marley was invited.
“Everybody knows he is my friend but this is my selection. It is not really about what people have to say despite we are friends, I have my way and I have my selections. It has nothing to do about our friendship, this is just the Zanku Album and it is my selection.” Zlatan added.
Zlatan, however, disclosed that he and Naira Marley are working on a joint album which is expected to drop next year.
