On Saturday, the 26th of October, Zlatan Ibile bagged three awards at the Annual African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) 2019.
The ZANKU dance founder went home with three awards from three major categories which are Best Collab (Killin Dem), Best Song of the Year (Killin Dem) and Best New Act of the year.
This achievement seems to have thrown the Zanku singer off guard as he went on Instagram to drop an emotional message to talk about his journey as an artist and to also, show his appreciation to not just the award organizers but also to his fans who took his name to the height it is presently at and voted for him to see this win.

This is a big feat for the singer who was nominated at the recently held Headies Award but went home with no win except for his name coming up with Burnaboy's for the Best Collabo which he also won at Afrimma.
