I stumbled into music, I want to be a footballer  - Zlatan reveals + VIDEO

Popular Nigerian rapper, Zlatan Ibile, has told fans that his childhood ambition was to pursue a career in football.

The artiste behind the hit track ‘Zanku’ revealed that he always wanted to join the ranks of La Liga giant FC Barcelona after facing academic challenges in school.

He further revealed that he never had the intention of becoming a musician, stressing that he stumbled into music.

In an interview with Echo Room, Zlatan said he picked interest in music after one of his friends played a song he recorded for 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.”
