Aba Market Mass Produce Fake Zlatan’s ZTTW After 2 Days of Launch


Aba market has successfully replicated the new clothing brand of the Nigerian rapper and singer, Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael (a.k.a Zlatan Ibile), and X influencer and doctor, Dr. Penking, has criticized the market for this unscrupulous act.

Zlatan announced the launch of his brand and the opening of his store, ‘ZTTW Shop’ situated in Lekki Phase 1, Eti-Osa LG, Lagos on May 19, 2024, and on May 24, held the grand opening.

Following this local brand news, which welcomed some notable celebrities including Darey Art Alade, Bella Shmurda, Ruger, and Skibi, in less than 24 hours after the launch, Aba market traders began producing replicas of his clothing brand. The doppelgangers that are spreading online like wildfire have caused a fuss.

Expressing his dissatisfaction, Dr. Penking said that Zlatan had contributed more than N237 billion to the brand. He wondered how the musician would make back his investment given the abundance of fake goods on the market.

He stated, “Zlatan spent 237 billion Naira to open this ZTTW store, only for Aba to start counterfeiting his style in less than 24 hours. No pity at all. How will he recoup all that money?”

However, there have been both positive and negative responses to his opinion from some social media junkies.

Mr. Nonsense, another X user in a post showed no empathy as he smites Aba people for this act.

According to him, Igbos will say they are destroying the Igbo man’s businesses, they are attacking an Igbo man’s business and the same Igbos, Zlatan opens new clothing line “Igbos do the fake, Rahman Jago opens new clothing line, Igbos do the fake.”

Igbos have been pirating the work of Yoruba movie industries for more than 20 years. The destruction of other people’s way of living and other people’s business by the Igbos are widely overlooked and not talked about by Nigerians.

Continuing, Igbos constantly making fake products from other Nigerian companies, “is not categorised as Igbos demolishing other people’s business, right? Fake alcohol, fake beverages, fake drinks, fake drugs, piracy, import and export of drugs, baby factories, and making of fake clothing are widely associated with a particular tribe in Nigeria.

“But when the same people come out and cry about a shop built on an illegal land getting demolished, Nigerians seem to see that…, he added.”
