He wrote,

“10 years ago, there was no Zlatan Ibile.
All there was, was an aspiring footballer.
Mapoly students believed in me by ensuring I won this contest!
From then, everything changed from football to music.
I did not have 2 personal songs let alone a hit until 2017 with Baddo.
Thank you to every Mapoly student who stood by me. Thank you Day 1 Zlatanovaz. Can’t believe today makes it exactly 10 years already… And we’re still going strong.
