Just some few weeks ago, news broke out on the fracas between Nigerian rapper Zlatan Ibile and family members of internet sensation, Segun Wire. The rapper was reportedly beaten mercilessly and now he has opened up on his regrets helping the little boy.
When Zlatan fell in love with Segun’s music talent, he promised to help him. But Zlatan later alleged that the little boy’s family members were using him to extort money from people and he challenged them. Zlatan was then molested and attacked by hoodlums who were allegedly related to Segun’s family.
While speaking with Sunday Scoop, Zlatan said he withdrew his decision to help Segun when his image was getting tarnished.
“I don’t have much to say about the issue again because I have done what I needed to do. I have withdrawn my support. I just wanted to help him, but my image was tarnished. I withdrew because I just felt it is high time I lived my own life. I am still a young boy; I have younger ones and parents too that need help. I have yet to get to where I want to be; so, I just want to focus on myself for now.”
Zlatan Ibile then went further to say the fact that he stopped working with Segun Wire does not mean he will not render assistance to others that need his help
“If you help someone and you got beaten for it, why won’t you regret it? Before withdrawing my support for Segun, I thought about it thoroughly and I am not happy I took such a decision. Once you mean well and people don’t appreciate it, it becomes hard for you to help others. But I don’t think I will stop helping people generally. I will only be more careful when helping others because I have learnt my lessons.”
