Misunderstandings are not common only to regular people. They happen amongst celebrities too. The only difference between celebrities and everyone else is that their fallouts become public knowledge.

This is the curious case of Zlatan Ibile and Dj Cuppy.

A few days ago a video circulating social media contained footage of Zlatan denying knowing DJ Cuppy, after being asked why he blocked her on Whatsapp. To the amazement of the seated audience. The duo had collaborated on Cuppy’s single, Gelato early last year.
Speculations began flying from all corners about what the DJ could have done to warrant the shade. Dj cuppy remained silent too, to compound the issues.

In a leaked video conversation with Davido, Zlatan revealed that he was at the charity event Cuppy organized, and he was not remunerated for his effort.
A journalist shed some light on the saga and gave Twitter users inside information about an exchange of favours between the two stars.

‘New information says Cuppy paid for Zlatan's flights and accommodation. Turns out, the charity performance in Abuja was a transactional repayment for an earlier deed by Cuppy. According to my source, two weeks prior, Cuppy had performed for free at Zlatan and Naira's show.
She had flown to Abuja with her team and her equipment, where she supported them with a FOC performance. She handled her logistics and did it for her friendly colleague. The fundraiser was a professional Goodwill repayment of that deed. He was catered to. And logistics handled
Over 200 people were flown into Abuja for the event. Kwesi Arthur came from Ghana, Skuki and a few others. Everyone was flown, and their hotels were covered. Why is there a problem then? "Entitlement," I'm told. "He's refusing to stick to what was agreed."
Also interesting to note here that Zlatan Ibile and Cuppy both share the same lawyer, Yemisi. The same person handles all their legal and financial agreements, and there's a level of fairness expected when it comes to monetary agreements.
In all this the only response Cuppy has given is that she has learnt to kill them with kindness and rise above the noise.
