Zlatan Ibile puts his verified Twitter account up for sale with 1.4m followers

Nigerian rapper, Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael also known as Zlatan Ibile, has stirred reactions with his decision to sell his Twitter account.

He took to microblogging platform on Sunday, June 25 and announced that his verified account is up for sale.

The ‘Lagos Anthem’ crooner has over 1.4 million followers and the page has been active for 12 years, since he opened it in March 2011.

Zlatan did not explain the reason for his decision, but he got fans wondering whether something happened or if he was joking.

The artiste simply wrote; “Twitter account for sale”

Some of his fans, however, chose to indulge him by asking for his account number and trying to bargain price.

In other news, an elderly Kenyan man has been left totally devastated after a young lady he took on vacation absconded with all his money.

He was said to have sold two acres of land belonging to his family without seeking their permission and used the money to pick up a young girl in Kisumu.

The man then bought two plane tickets and flew her to Mombasa for a vacation and booked a lodge for them to stay.

However, in the course of staying there, she drugged him with a local substance called ‘rice’ and when he fell asleep, she disappeared with the money from the sale of the land.

According to Ezra Kibet who shared the story on Twitter, the man was left stranded at the hotel as he could not settle the bill and was almost having heart attack as a result of what the girl did to him.

He shared a video which showed the old man hitting himself in anger after realising he had been played.

Ezra wrote; “This man sold 2 acres of land, without family consent. Picked a lady in Kisumu, boarded a plane to Mombasa for holiday. The lady gave him “rice” and left with the money. He’s now stranded at an hotel reception, under pressure”.
