Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael, Nigerian singer better known as Zlatan Ibile, has come under intense criticism on social media after he made a song mocking Tacha’s “body odour”.
The talented singer took to his social media pages to share the footage after Tacha was disqualified from the BBNaija show for acts of physical violence.
In the video, the singer is seen in a studio with four of his friends with bottles of perfumes, dancing and echoing the lyrics churned out by Zlatan.
The ‘Bolanle’ crooner also sprays himself with the cologne in his hand as he dishes out lyrics that make reference to the housemate’s “body odour”.
“Ah, what is smelling?! Tacha, you will not kill me,” he raps in Yoruba language.
The singer also promised to release the full song if he gets 150,000 comments.
“150k comments and I will drop this song !! If not I’m deleting the data of the song ZLATAN FT @tundeednut,” he wrote.
The video has sparked a flurry of backlashes on social media platforms especially Twitter.
Quite a number of users have condemned the video, labelling it “extreme” and saying it could have adverse mental effects on Tacha.
Some users, however, gave the song their full approval.
“Praise or shame her either way you talk about her. What @Zlatan_Ibile did is seriously uncalled for, that’s the stupidest thing i’ve seen this year #bbnaija #saynotocyberbullying” a Twitter user said.
“If anything happens to Tacha, Zlatan will be held responsible for making a hate video, is this how our so-called celebrities should handle stuff, you id*oitic Yoruba boy. You are a disgrace,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

Would it be a surprise if Tacha goes to the brim of suicide?— Duke of Ibadan. 👑🔱 (@AsiwajuLerry) September 28, 2019
Tundeednut is busy dragging PeterPsquare on his page with her name, Zlatan is composing a hate song for her. Jaruma suddenly back off.
You think these things won’t push her to the point of depression? https://t.co/U3RwVsaq8L
Zlatan sang Bolanle. Ladies - that’s what we want. We need better life with a rich guy not broke guys.— POOJA... (@PoojaMedia) September 27, 2019
Zlatan sang Yeye boyfriend. Ladies - Zlatan thanks for vindicating us. No broke guys allowed.

Feminists are DAFT!!!
Some people want to claim moral high ground on this Zlatan Video now.— Edmund 💉 (@EdmundOris) September 27, 2019
Thank God Falz already said everybody is a motherfucking hypocrite.
Tacha is now the victim because of Zlatan? Wait I don’t get. What are you people saying? As much as I know that some of the bants went too far, she brought it upon herself. Stop your hypocrisy cus when you’re insulting our president you don’t think of his mental health too. 🙄— DREYLO (@RealDreylo) September 28, 2019
So let's goan cyberbully Zlatan for cyberbullying Tacha?! Are we stopping cyberbullying or transferring it from one person to the other as ur leaders suggest? This herd mentality shit is why Buhari rates his cattles more than you lot! 😩— Ferdinand (@Ferdy_5th) September 27, 2019
Zlatan made reference to Ayefele's legs severally & the song banged but you were not worried about his mental health 😂— . (@Ay0miide) September 28, 2019
She called Mike stupid.— OurFavOnlineDoctor 💘 🥳 (@DrOlufunmilayo) September 27, 2019
She called Mercy a slut.
She called Omashola a barking dog and a chihuahua. She was rude and cruel to almost everyone.
Zlatan went a bit too far-
And I hope he doesn’t release the song-
But the truth be told,
Tacha was no angel.
No need sugarcoating it.

He shouldn’t release that song, at least pity Tacha’s mental health.
