Nigerian Indigenous rapper, Zlatan Ibile is currently facing heavy critics on Twitter after he reacted to the recent wave Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other nationals in South Africa.
These past few days have been saturated with news of xenophobic attacks in South Africa on black people.
There have been some gruesome videos in circulation on the internet showing many Nigerians and foreigner being killed, maimed, lynched and their properties destroyed by South African locals in a surge of xenophobic attacks.
Zlatan, who was trying to react to air his opinion like every other Nigerian celebrity, made what seems like a grammatical error. He wrote:
“Deep down my heart I feel sad on the situation of things and happenings. Violence is never a solution but rather chaos. My people let’s pray and hope people in power handle the situation on ground.”
Deep down my heart I feel sad on the situation of things and happenings. Violence is never a solution but rather chaos . My people let’s pray and hope people in power handle the situation on ground ?

Some Nigerians instead of overlooking or correcting his grammatical blunder, have chosen to take a swipe at the rapper.
RIP to English.
English was last seen with Zlatan 10 hours ago and has been pronounced dead.
We're looking for Zlatan. Please anybody with his location should dm.

“ Violence is never a solution but chaos”
This statement made by zlatan could pass as a double entendre … and I think the derived meaning here is — violence doesn’t solve problems but rather causes chaos.
Stop dragging Zlatan abeg?
