Zlatan Served Us Trash With “Quilox” & “Unripe Pawpaw”, He Needs To Take A Break… My Thoughts

Olabimpe O | - Leave A Comment

The first track released early in new year by an artiste is meant to ginger music lovers for what is coming ahead in the year. However, the majority of the songs that have been realized this year before now have failed to impress fans and what’s even worse, they are from our A-listers. Our focus in this article is Zlatan – the rave of the moment, Nigeria’s golden boy.

The singer started the year with two singles “Quilox” and “Unripe Paw Paw” and honestly it’s scary that we might have to be subjected to such music this year. I wonder, is this whole thing intentional ? or he’s teasing us because there are more goodies i feel he’s not ready to release.

Both songs had me scared for his future in the music industry. Didn’t he learn from the failure of his debut album? Does he want to end up being a One-Calendar Year-Wonder kind of artiste?  Note: Before ya’ll come for me, please try listening to both songs and you’ll see we might share the same thoughts.


Zlatan - Quilox

Zlatan is the king of making music out of trends and we have to give him credit for that because he’s a pro at it. But for how long would he continue to make music in such a way? Does he have to wait for another big story to break before he can make music? Zlatan is a creative human being (a rare gem for the industry) but it appears he is still struggling (to have his own direction)

His intentions for releasing this track is quite understandable. He did it to create awareness when the Quilox club owned by Shina Peller was shut down, just like what he did with “Tacha”. This track isn’t entirely that bad because it has good lyrical content. Zlatan tells his fans that it’s ‘All Man For Himself‘ this new year, you have to fight for yourself, your happiness and success. No one wants to roll with a poor man (a nobody), so get up, stay woke, make money and ball.

A good content, Very inspiring and motivating but he could have done better. This track had the potential to hit it big but the title was off and Nigerians are tired of the same old Zanku lazy pattern on song. Fans hope were high when he posted the snippet of this song (studio recording), they were eager to get full body of work but got disappoint after the official release (It now feels like his snippet are more interest than his full songs cos most get bored in between)

“Unripe Paw Paw”

Zlatan - "Unripe Pawpaw"

Zlatan needs to try out other producers (the versatile ones) because sticking to just one person and pattern could hinder him from seeing that he can make more magic. The name of the track alone tells you that you’re about to be subjected to something terrifying. Upon listening, you might just go ahead and throw your phone into a large body of water because of the excruciating pain you would experience might be unbearable.

In addition, this track instantly reduces one’s IQ. Yes, it’s that serious and it’s the best way to describe the kind of torture the singer put his fans through by releasing to such music. The track unlike his first single “Quilox” sends no messages, it has no direction, just the usual Zanku beat, and incomprehensible lyrics.  Zlatan needs to understand that there’s a huge difference between making music and noise. People that are vibing to this song am sure is just cos for the money, the challenge and reward attached to it (And for how long will he continue with this style, PR)

On the brighter side, the beat and mixing are superb and it also has a good vibe but it still doesn’t beat the fact that it’s not IT, it’s a big NO-NO.

The Verdict

Zlatan should be focused on making evergreen songs, songs that we would still bop to in the future without getting bored. And also stick to features for now and make people crave for his own single (songs). His efforts are appreciated but with the name he has made for himself in the industry, these new songs are not enough. Nigerians are moving from the Zanku trend gradually, it’s a new year – they are thirsty for something new and exciting. Both tracks were nothing spectacular and unique so I’ll give “Quliox” a 5.5/10 and Unripe PawPaw a 4/10

    The beat of Unripe Pawpaw is nice but his Creativity was very poor. I agree with your write up but am not surprised at all. After listening to ‘Bolanle’ I knew Zlatan was out of ideas. About the ‘Quilox’ track he released I was actually one of the first to download it, expecting something good but immediately got disappointed. Zlatan wasn’t flow to the beat, the music was killing my ear drum because of noise. It was poorly composed and had no chorus. I had to immediately delete it. About the producers, I feel Zlatan should work with Rexxie or Tekno more in the future because those guys produce style is unique and also suit Zlatans style of music. Zlatan needs to improve else he might just lose his significance in the music industry when there is a new trend.

    fuck this site or the writer. if you’re with him, fuck you too. zlatan is meant to give us club hit and not a wizkid, fireboy melody.
    By the way, what the fuck’s rema singing buy still he won awards ahead of fireboy and others. So, let him give it to us make we shake body.
    Nigerians caused it though….. we threw our good music and want beat to move our bodies. Wizkid came in, got Fame and now he is giving us shit. Many of them.
    Good music is gone…….
    so let’s just shake body….. I’m out

    Please speak for yourself. You don’t speak for no – one, this is just your opinion and I see so much hate in your words. After you say it’s thrash you then come and say Quilox is good but the title. You are confused and you cannot even justify yourself. Pick a side
