Being a player for Barcelona was my dream, Zlatan

Popular Nigerian rapper Zlatan Ibile has disclosed that playing football was his ideal job.

After dropping out of school, the “Zanku” crooner declared his desire to play for Barcelona, the dominant team in La Liga.

Zlatan Ibile emphasized that he fell into music by accident and clarified that he never intended to be a musician.

Zlatan stated in an interview with Echo Room that he became interested in music after hearing a song he had recorded for one of his friends.

To quote him:

I was not a bright student in secondary school. I struggled with Mathematics and Accounting. I was in a Commercial class. I failed my WAEC and I was supposed to sit at home for a year. All my dream was to play for Barcelona.

“I tried my possible best but the corruption in Nigerian football discouraged me. I was playing for a local club then. When I failed WAEC, I was going to sit down at home for a year, and then one of my friends came and played his record for me.

“I told him to take me to the studio the next time he was going. That was how I became a musician. I never had the intention of being a musician.
