Whether it is a publicity stunt, his recent actions have ignited social media conversations.
On Sunday, June 25th, he announced the microblogging platform that his verified account was available for purchase. The ‘Lagos Anthem’ singer has been active on the platform for 12 years since its creation in March 2011 and has gained over 1.4 million followers.
Zlatan did not explain his decision, leaving fans to speculate whether there was a reason behind it or if he was joking. The musician’s statement was brief, as he stated:
“Twitter account for sale”
Although some fans attempted to negotiate the price by asking for the singer’s account number, it remains unclear whether this was a publicity stunt or a teaser for an upcoming project, as the singer has yet to reveal any additional details. Nevertheless, their exchange has sparked a widespread discussion in his mentions.
