Nigerian rapper and singer, Zlatan Ibile has opened up on how he reacted after news broke that his friend and colleague, Oladips passed away.

The Hip Hop artiste added that he doesn’t care where Oladips had gone, but all that matters to him is that he returned back to the living.
“I cry tire!!! I no care where you go I thank GOD you sha come back!,” Zlatan wrote.
