Months ago, Afeare took to his Instagram account to make some allegations against DJ Cuppy over her issues with singer, Zlatan Ibile.
He claimed that despite the commercial success of the 2019 hit song, Gelato, by DJ Cuppy and Zlatan. The disc jockey did not compensate Zlatan.

Responding to his claims, the Gelato singer simply said, “For the record… There have been no breaches of my contractual agreement regarding the song #Gelato as confirmed by lawyers… However, as @IsrealDMW publicly inaccurately declared I owe an artist money, I am suing him for libel and defamation!”
