Nigerian rapper, Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael has finally opened up on his beef with billionaire heiress, DJ Cuppy.
According to the rapper, he does not know who or what DJ Cuppy is.
The street-hop sensation made this known amidst allegations by Cuppy that he had blocked her on social media platforms, Whatsapp and Instagram.
Recall that earlier this month, DJ Cuppy real name Florence Otedola had taken to social media where she revealed that the rapper had blocked her on the above-mentioned platforms.
According to Cuppy, Zlatan blocked her over 10 months ago and till this day she still doesn’t know why.
The billionaire heiress made this known via her Twitter page on Friday, January 8, 2020.
“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!” she tweeted.
It would be recalled that DJ Cuppy and Zlatan collaborated on the song ‘Gelato’ back in 2019.
While Zlatan did not make any statement when Cuppy made the allegations, he has now come out to say that he doesn’t even know her.
The “Lagos Anthem” crooner made the above known in a recent interview on The Switch show as he flat out denied ever knowing who DJ Cuppy is or what she does.
When asked what transpired between him and the Dj, Zlatan interrupted by asking “is she an artist,” before finally stating that he does not know who that is.

When Cuppy made it known that the rapper had blocked her on social media, a Nigerian lady identified as Rashy Don Koncepts who claimed to have inside info had given an alleged reason as to why the rapper blocked Cuppy.
According to Rashy, Zlatan Ibile featured in Gelato for free but DJ Cuppy ignored him when the song became a hit.
She tweeted, “According to someone closer to @Zlatan_Ibile, I heard the featuring he did with u was actually FREE and when it became hits u were supposed to at least Give him some dough as appreciation but instead u were behaving pompous by replying late when he tryna say Hi, u changed.
“The person told me u hardly reply his chat and when u do its always late, but during the featuring u guys were so close. U changed and he ain’t finding it cool. No vibes anymore so don’t blame him”.
Cuppy is yet to respond to Zlatan’s jibe.
Born Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael, the rapper hit fame a few years ago following his collaboration with Chinko Ekun and Lil Kesh on the 2018 hit single ‘Able God.’
He went on to drop hit songs including ‘Zanku’ and collaboration with Burna Boy in ‘Killin Dem.’
Zlatan was in the news recently after spoiling himself with a New Year’s gift in the form of a brand new Chevrolet Camaro estimated to cost a whopping N20 Millon!
Zlatan’s latest acquisition was made public by one of his friends, Abu Abel Egbarin earlier today on Instagram.
