On 10 May 2020, the EFCC arrested Naira Marley and his friends Zlatan, Tiamiu Kayode, Adewunmi Moses, Micheal “Taqueesh” Adenuga, and Abubakar Musa. The arrest was made a day after Marley released the video for the controversial single “Am I A Yahoo Boy”. Five days later, the EFCC released Zlatan and three others but kept Marley in custody due to the evidence against him. On 16 May 2020, the EFCC charged him with 11 counts of fraud before a Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos.
On 19 May 2020, Zlatan released the single “4 Nights In Ekohtiebo” while Marley was still in prison.
