DJ Cuppy, a Nigerian songstress, has opened up on her strained relationship with Zlatan Ibile, a singer.


In 2019, DJ Cuppy had enlisted Zlatan to record and shoot the video for ‘Gelato‘, a colourful hit song of hers.

Shortly after the collaborative track was released, ‘Gelato’ had scaled up to number 3 on the Apple Music chart.

But on Friday, the DJ, whose real name is Florence Otedola, took to her Twitter page to reveal that Zlatan had blocked her on WhatsApp and Instagram since after the collaboration.


The disc jockey also expressed her concern that it has been 10 months already and Zlatan is yet to give her reasons for it.

“10 months later and I sometimes still wonder why @Zlatan_Ibile blocked me on WhatsApp and Instagram without ever saying why; we were actually friends. And ‘Gelato’ was a hit!” the DJ wrote.

“I’m human and I have feelings too.”

Since her emergence in the Nigerian music scene, Cuppy has continued to pull the string of fame as an entertainer.

Aside from music production and entertainment recognition, she has bagged quite a number of endorsement deals with renowned brands including Pepsi, Tiger Beer, and Samsung.


Zlatan, on the other hand, gained recognition in the country’s music industry after releasing ‘My Body’ in 2017. He would later work with Chinko Ekun and Lil Kesh on the 2018 hit single ‘Able God’.
