It has been quite an intriguing year for popular Nigerian artiste, Zlatan Ibile. From getting detained by the Economic and Financial Commission in May to bagging awards months later.
Adding another feather to his cap, he recently announced that he is gearing up to drop his first album titled “ZANKU” which is an acronym for “Zlatan Abeg No Kill Us”.
The body of work houses 17 tracks, including previously released tracks that features Tiwa Savage, Davido, Yonda, Burna Boy, Patoranking amongst others.
On October 28th, 2019, the singer made the announcement via his Instagram account while expressing his joy and deep gratitude to God.
… I present you all the tracklist of our soon-to-drop album titled ZANKU. My journey has been a mixture of pain, laughter, disappointments, gains, sadness, peace and more. I have had low and high moments.
Zlatan also goes on to reveal this new project is a way of sharing his life experiences and thanked his ever growing fan base for their unending support. He further went on to thank his record label among others saying:
