Afeare Isreal, a personal logistics manager to Davido, has opened up on why Zlatan Ibile, a Nigerian singer, blocked DJ Cuppy, a fellow entertainer, on social media.


Zlatan and Cuppy have continued to make the headlines over the pair’s seemingly strained relationship.

Cuppy had in 2019 enlisted Zlatan for ‘Gelato‘, a hit song, while the street singer also performed at the DJ’s charity event held in Abuja in November that same year.

But months after the collaboration, the 28-year-old had revealed that Zlatan blocked her on social media without explaining what she did wrong.


Reacting, however, Zlatan had during a recent show shocked fans when he denied knowing the DJ, whose real name is Florence Otedola.

Weighing into the matter in an Instagram post on Friday, Israel said Zlatan’s action was because the disc jockey did not “duly reward” him for his efforts.

He alleged that despite the success of ‘Gelato’ and Cuppy’s charity event, she did not give Zlatan “anything.”


Israel also alleged that the ‘Zanku’ crooner paid for the Abuja hotel he used with his own money when he went for Cuppy’s event.

“Kudos to someone like Zlatan, who took a bold step by flushing a full fake friend like Cuppy who was just using his head all in the name of my papa na Otedola. Zlatan did a hit collabo with her, ordinary one kobo, he no see,” he wrote.

“She also took Zlatan to Abuja for her fundraising where she made billions of naira and didn’t even remember Zee for one kobo until tomorrow. No accommodation, no feeding. Zlatan had to even spend his own personal money at Transcorp Hilton to carter for everyone including me. Dis na 2021 abeg.”

Cuppy and Zlatan are yet to react to Israel’s claim as of the time this report was filed.
