Fast-rising talent in the Nigerian music scene, Zinoleesky, has found himself entangled in the drama surrounding Mohbad’s death. The young artist is signed to Marlian Music, a record label owned by Naira Marley, who has faced accusations of involvement in the tragic incident.
The aftermath of Mohbad’s tragic passing has been chaotic but even worse, the repercussions for those suspected to be involved are now being felt on an international scale.
The latest twist in this ongoing saga involves US show promoters who have made a decision regarding Marlian Music signee, Zinoleesky. They took to their social handles to reveal that Zinolesky’s tour will no longer hold and new dates would be revealed as events unfold.
We regret to announce that the forthcoming 2023 US SHOW has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstance which is beyond our control.
We are indeed so sorry, we apologize to all our American Sisters & Brothers who have tickets.
We really do love you and we shall try to make it up, new dates will be communicated as event unfolds.”
Let’s recall that yesterday, Kemi Filani reported that a DJ had stated that Zinolesky was involved in a plot to take his life.
The story began when a Twitter user, known as “deepagon of Lagos,” brought attention to an incident where Sam Larry and Zinoleesky allegedly attacked and bullied a DJ for playing Seyi Vibez’s music while Zinoleesky was present. The user’s tweet read, “This same guy att[k]ed and b[ull]ied this DJ for playing Seyi Vibez’s music while Zino was present.”
It wasn’t long before DJ Tuzo himself confirmed the accuracy of the information, shedding more light on the incident.
This alarming development led to a wave of backlash against Zinoleesky and those associated with Marlian Music. US show promoters, who were possibly concerned about the negative publicity and controversy surrounding the artist, have reportedly decided to cancel Zinoleesky’s upcoming tour.
