Zlatan Gets Cautioned By Presidency Over Unconcerned Attitude To Coronavirus New Cases

Nigerian singer, Zlatan Ibile got cautioned by his unbothered attitude towards the fight against coronavirus in Nigeria.
Recall that the singer said he doesn’t believe that the virus exists and he was heavily criticized online. It appears he is quite serious about his views. The rapper took to his Twitter page to react to the news from The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) which confirmed 86 new cases of coronavirus in the country bringing the total number to 627.

Zlatan, however, was amused by this and reacted to the tweet with 4 laughing emojis. This did not sit well with presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, who cautioned him, reminding him that the situation was a matter of life and death. 

I can see some people are angry with my reply to Zlatan’s tweet, which he made a joke out of NCDC’s last night update on #COVID19Nigeria. I didn’t reply him as Zlatan, I replied him as a celebrity, who has hundreds of followers. Again, ‘this whole #COVID19 issue is not a joke.’
