Zlatan Ibile

Zlatan Ibile, a Nigerian hip-hop artist, claimed that it took him months to get used to his part in “Gangs of Lagos,” Amazon Prime’s first African original film.

Zlatan played Kash, a notorious gangster in the feisty crime thriller, which premiered on April 7, 2023.

In a recent interview with media personality Samuel Eni, the Zanku crooner revealed that learning karate took him months.

He also disclosed that he quit music temporarily to focus on mastering his role in the movie.

He said, “I have always wanted to act. I had a picture in my head. But I didn’t want it to be just any kind of movie. So, when I was called up that they wanted me to be in a movie by Amazon Prime, I said, ‘Yes, this is the actual one I want.’

“It took me months to go learn those Jet Li moves, Jackie Chan moves. It was stressful a little bit. I took out my time. I had to like pause recording music for a while. It took us like two months or so and then we rounded up [with the shooting of the movie]. The movie was shot in 2021.”
