If there is something artists or celebrities, in general, dread the most, it is getting jumped or robbed by random fans out of the blue. Nigerian singer Zlatan Ibile can attest to this as he almost fell victim to a pickpocket. Recently, Zlatan Ibile interrupted his act to deal with a fan who suspiciously grabbed his pockets. The “Jaboti” crooner jumped off the stage and into the audience to perform up close with fans as part of his immersive performance at the Okochiri beach festival 2023.
A man was seen stroking Zlatan Ibile’s knickers in a performance video as he returned to the stage, giving the singer the impression that the man was trying to rob him. The performer became enraged and tried to jump at the individual, but people kept stopping him. Eventually, he successfully jumped on the fan and other people in the crowd.
Zlatan returned to the stage to continue performing as if nothing had happened after briefly fighting the fan to prevent the situation from spiraling out of control. The singer was also sporting orange shorts from his newly launched Zanku clothing line, which he officially announced on Instagram last week to a warm reception from his fans and supporters. In the meantime, check out footage from the show below.
