Zinoleesky first emerged in 2019 as one of the exciting new voices from Nigeria’s street music scene. One of his freestyle videos went viral on social media and caught the attention of street-hop tastemakers like Naira Marley who eventually signed him to his music label. The young Yoruba-speaking singer clearly had a buzz from the viral success of his freestyle but it was his collaboration with Lil Frosh on Who Knows that first foreshadowed his imminent rise to mainstream acclaim.
Who Know established the allure of his playful melodies, charming songwriting and the honeyed vocals that complete the package. His confident lyrics convinced us that he’ll be a prominent figure in the music scene so we invited him to perform the song at our Aux Sessions. The Aux Sessions video was one of the first visuals fans got from the street-hop artists and we were happy to have introduced such a young talent to the mainstream audience as he has continued building on his success with subsequent hit songs like Kilofese and more.
