Zlatan, a Nigerian musician and rapper, has released a 6-track EP titled “Omo Ologo.” The project is a follow-up to his successful 2021 release, “Resan,” and it depicts Zlatan’s path of sound growth, accomplishment, and maturity.
Growing up, Zlatan dreamed of success and saw football as a way to achieve it. He never expected that music would lead him this far.

With “Omo Ologo,” Zlatan demonstrates his ability to appeal to both the streets and the mainstream. The project includes a wide range of sounds, with Zlatan excelling at insightful storytelling and having a pulse on Nigerian pop culture. The project is a carefully constructed cheerful celebration of everything that has shaped him into the man he is today.
Zlatan’s music is informed with a worldliness that is never forced. His ability to span different realms, and neither performance appears deceptive but rather complementing. The album is a tribute to Zlatan’s powerful lyrics, hit-making abilities, and ability to fluidly transition between genres.
